Can I complete my British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program application with a valid ICT job offer while my work permit application is still being prepared?
I will be transferring within my company from USA to Canada with an ‘Intra-company Transfer - Specialized Knowledge’ work permit. I already have a job offer from Canada, but the work permit application and approval process may take a few months due to COVID-19 and other factors.
Meanwhile, I have started my BC PNP application and have received an invitation to apply. My NOC is 2173 (Software engineers and designers) so I might be eligible for the BC Tech Pilot program.
I also noticed that the application needs a ‘Copy of evidence of recruitment (if applicable)’ – I am assuming this is not applicable to me since this is an ICT and there was no external recruitment effort. Is that correct?
