SPP Colleges in British Columbia (BC) with Cities

Note: The Student Partners Program (SPP) has been recently replaced by the Student Direct Stream (SDS) program in India.

British Columbia is the favorite destination for Indian students as many students prefer going to the most popular city there – Vancouver. There are three universities and ten colleges in British Columbia which are under SPP, the full-form of SPP is the Student Partners Program.

Overall, BC is a very diverse province with at least 30% of the population being immigrants. Employment opportunities in BC are expected to grow by 1.8% each year, which would create around 450,000 new jobs. In October 2022, the unemployment rate in British Columbia stood at 4.2% and the labour force participation rate stood at 64.9%. This means improved chances of getting job placements after finishing college. Major economic sectors in British Columbia include agriculture, clean technology, construction, film and television, fisheries & aquaculture, forestry, manufacturing, etc. Since most of the courses offered at SPP colleges are skill-oriented, it makes a lot easier to apply for PR ultimately as Canadian authorities prefer taking in ‘highly-skilled’ professionals as citizens.
