New Brunswick PNP

New Brunswick is one of the provinces in the Atlantic region of Canada. The province has several unique Provincial Nominee Programs to bring in more skilled immigrants to the area.

If you too are thinking about initiating the Canada PR Visa process, you must consider the New Brunswick PNP.

Some of the immigration streams available under the New Brunswick PNP are:

  • New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream
  • New Brunswick Skilled Workers with Employer Support
  • New Brunswick Entrepreneurial Stream
  • New Brunswick Post-Graduate Entrepreneurial Stream

New Brunswick is also well-known for conducting a large number of job fairs and information sessions for new immigrants. The province is also a participant in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.

New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream

The Express Entry Labour Market Stream of New Brunswick is linked to the federal Express Entry Program. It provides a route to Canadian Permanent Residence for skilled professionals from across the globe.

The program requirements are as follows:

  • You must have an active profile in the Express Entry Pool
  • You must be currently residing in New Brunswick. You must be able to submit a letter of employment from your employer.
  • You must have a valid Canadian Work Permit
  • You must have work experience in an occupation in the NOC 0, A, or B category
  • You must have an educational credential equivalent to a Canadian high school diploma

Based on its labour market needs, New Brunswick also invites candidates directly from the Express Entry Pool. Such candidates receive an NOI (Notification of Interest) from the New Brunswick PNP on the Express Entry account. Selected candidates may submit an EOI through the Immigration New Brunswick website. They will then be sent an ITA to apply for provincial nomination.

New Brunswick Skilled Worker with Employer support

High-skilled foreign workers who have a job offer from New Brunswick can apply for a provincial nomination through this stream.

The program requirements are as follows:

  • You do not need to have an Express Entry profile as this stream is not linked to the Express Entry Program
  • You must have a valid offer of employment from an eligible employer in New Brunswick
  • Your job offer must be for a job in the NOC 0, A, or B category. If your job offer is for a job in the NOC C and D category, it must be in NOC Skill Type 1, 3,7, 8, or 9.
  • You need to have a language score of at least CLB 4 in either English or French
  • You must have a minimum education equivalent to a Canadian high school diploma
  • You must also be able to score at least 60 points out of 100 on the New Brunswick points assessment grid

New Brunswick Business Immigration Stream

The New Brunswick Business Immigration Stream is an immigration pathway for experienced business owners who want to invest and manage a New Brunswick business. Eligible candidates must have a good amount of experience in business management and also have a high net worth. Selected candidates can start their own business or buy an existing business in the province.

New Brunswick Post-graduate Entrepreneurial Stream

The post-graduate Entrepreneurial Stream targets international post-graduate students of New Brunswick colleges and universities who are now running a business in the province. Such students must have started their own or purchased an existing business in the province. The business must have been operational for at least a year to be considered valid. Applicants who meet these requirements and intend to settle in New Brunswick long-term can apply for a provincial nomination through this stream.

New Brunswick Strategic Initiative Stream

This stream is for French-speaking workers who have the necessary skills, education, and work experience to contribute to the New Brunswick economy.

A provincial nomination gets you 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System. These extra points guarantee that you will receive an ITA in the next invitation round of the Express Entry Program. Candidates who receive an ITA can initiate their Canada PR process by submitting a completed PR Visa application to IRCC.
