New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) is a provincial immigration program. It allows the province to select and nominate qualified business people and skilled workers from around the world to live, work and settle in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP)

The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) offers an opportunity to those qualified to settle in New Brunswick and contribute to the local economy.

Applications to the NBPNP are reviewed based on eligibility requirements. Priority will be given to applicants who have a better potential to become economically established in New Brunswick. The program can be further categorized into the following streams:

  • Express Entry Labour Market Stream
  • Skilled Worker Applicants with Family Support
  • Skilled Worker Applicants with Employer Support
  • Business Applicants

Express Entry Labour Market Stream

Express entry is a relatively new electronic system for managing applications for Permanent Residence to Canada. If you meet all eligibility criteria and selection factors for the Federal Skilled Worker Program and the Provincial criteria, you may receive a nomination from the Government of New Brunswick and be invited by the Federal Government to apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry system.

Skilled Worker Applicants with Family Support

The Skilled Worker Applicants with Family Support Stream offers the opportunities for those who have worked in New Brunswick and have close family ties to the province. If you are nominated by the NBPNP, your application will be forwarded to a CIC visa office for further evaluation.

Skilled Worker Applicants with Employer Support

The Skilled Worker Applicants with Employer Support Stream is another provincial program offering to those who qualify and have received a full-time, permanent job offer from a New Brunswick employer to be nominated. Applications are assessed based on the eligibility requirements and selection factors. Meeting the requirements does not guarantee nomination. Priority will be given to those who have the greatest potential to become economically established in New Brunswick.

Business Applicants

The NBPNP Business Applicants Stream provides another pathway of nomination for those who plan to own and actively manage a business in New Brunswick. You must meet all the eligibility requirements and be assessed according to selection criteria such as age, language skills, education, adaptability and business experience. A minimum of 50 points is required.

Please be reminded that this program is currently paused until further notice.
