Publish Date: 26/06/2024

British Columbia will introduce three new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams for international graduates in January 2025. These streams will be available to recent graduates with Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate degrees from eligible institutions in Canada.

The provincial government in B.C. has provided the following details about the new streams its PNP will introduce in 2025. All new streams will necessitate at least a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 8.

For recent graduates with Bachelor's degrees from eligible post-secondary institutions: eligible graduates must have a full-time, indeterminate job offer (without a declared end date).

For recent graduates with Master's degrees (in any field of study) from eligible post-secondary institutions: graduates must have a full-time job offer lasting at least one year in a skilled occupation.

3. Doctorate Stream:

For graduates and candidates of doctoral-level programs from eligible post-secondary institutions.

  • The streams will require a minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of 8.
  • Graduates with diplomas and certificates are not eligible for these streams but may qualify for other BCPNP pathways.
