Promoting Local Economic Development

Are you a community with a population under 75,000 and interested in attracting foreign entrepreneurs? The new BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) Entrepreneur Immigration – Regional Pilot may be of interest to your community.

The pilot is focused on attracting entrepreneurs to establish businesses in smaller communities. Participating communities will refer immigrant entrepreneurs to the BC PNP whose business concept aligns with the community’s economic priorities. To date, over 30 communities are enrolled in the two-year pilot.

The program is open to communities until May 1, 2019. Communities enrolled by this date will be invited to an in-person orientation/training workshop that will take place in May/June 2019. Communities who enrol, complete the workshop and confirm their enrolment will be added to the list of participating communities and be able to make referrals to the BC PNP.

If you have any questions about enrolment, pleas contact the BC PNP.
