British Columbia had launched the B.C. PNP Tech Pilot during 2017, which aimed to attract professional and skilled workers in thirty-two technology professions.

There were specific B.C. PNP draws meant for technology workers since May 2017.

This change proves that the province wishes to avail the benefit from technology workers who are searching for better alternatives after Trump became the U.S. President
