Overview

New Brunswick (NB) Provincial Nominee Program, like other provincial programs, invites skilled workers to live in and contribute to the economic prosperity of the Canadian province. It invites talented individuals through different streams which includes the Express Entry stream, the Skilled Workers with Family Support stream, and the Skilled Workers with Employer Support stream.

The PNP application requirements are such that candidates who are applying through Express Entry New Brunswick must create a profile and be selected by NBPNP or directly submit an Expression of Interest to NBPNP.

The other two skilled worker streams mentioned above require an Expression of Interest, after which selected candidates receive an Invitation to Apply. They must respond with the required documents and apply for permanent residence.

After approval, they can plan their departure to NB and the beginning of a new life!

2 to 6 months.

How It Works

New Brunswick PNP is a great way to enter into a new life in Canada and can be a means to immense prosperity and a number of opportunities. This gateway is open to skilled workers who can apply through three different streams: Express Entry, Employer Support, and Family Support.

Express Entry

Candidates applying through this stream can either submit a profile through the Express Entry system and be selected by NBPNP or can submit an Expression of Interest to the NBPNP directly. If they are selected from the Express Entry pool, they will receive an invitation to apply and will have to accept and respond to with documents and a full application, within a stipulated timeframe.

If they submit an Expression of Interest and it is amongst the most high-scoring, they will receive an Invitation to Apply. They must respond to the invitation with relevant documentation and a full application for permanent residence.

Skilled Workers with Employer Support

Skilled workers who have an employment offer in NB must submit an application to settle there with proof of their education, experience, job offer, funds, and other factors. Once the application is processed and approved, they can enter NB and enjoy a better lifestyle.

Skilled Workers with Family Support

Candidates who have close family in New Brunswick and are skilled workers between the ages of 22-55, have work experience in their intended area of occupation within the last two years, and meet educational requirements can apply through this channel. Close relatives of your spouse are also relevant and can be considered Family Supporters.

A family supporter can only support one applicant at a time and will confirm that he/she will be helping the applicant with a settlement plan. Candidates applying through this stream must submit an application with relevant documentation and wait for the nomination decision.

If you meet the PNP application requirements and receive a written confirmation of your nomination and PR, you can prepare to settle in New Brunswick Canada!
