The province of New Brunswick is located on Canada’s east coast on the Atlantic Ocean. The province plays host to a number of unique Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs) designed to attract and retain newcomers who will be able to fill gaps in the workforce and contribute meaningfully to local economies and communities.
The province operates several immigration streams:
The province of New Brunswick regularly organizes events overseas for foreign nationals who wish to immigrate to Canada. Please refer to our schedule of upcoming New Brunswick information sessions and job fairs. Those who are successful through these information sessions will be eligible to immigrate to Canada through the New Brunswick PNP or the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.
The New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream (EELMS) provides a pathway to permanent residence for highly skilled individuals who have expressed an interest in the stream. This program is aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration system, enabling successful applicants to receive expedited processing on their immigration applications.
Note: As of October 18th, 2018, this program was temporarily closed and will not be accepting Expressions of Interest (EOIs).
This program is expected to reopen in the future. The New Brunswick Entrepreneurial Stream targets experienced business owners or senior business managers who are willing to invest in a New Brunswick business which they will manage. In order to qualify, applicants must have a significant net worth and be willing to use their business management experience to start a new business or purchase an existing business in New Brunswick.
The New Brunswick Post-Graduate Entrepreneurial Stream targets recent graduates of New Brunswick universities and colleges who have started or bought a New Brunswick business and operated it for at least one year. If an applicant meets these requirements and intends to settle in New Brunswick permanently, they may qualify for a provincial nomination through this stream.
The New Brunswick Skilled Workers with Employer Support Stream targets high skilled foreign workers with a valid job offer from a New Brunswick employer.
The New Brunswick Skilled Workers with Family Support Stream targeted high skilled foreign workers who are currently working in New Brunswick and who have a close relative in the province. The program was terminated in February, 2018.
New Brunswick participates in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP). The AIPP is a economic growth initiative developed in partnership between the federal government and Canada’s Atlantic provinces. AIPP facilitates the immigration process for newcomers who have obtained a job offer from a designated employer in the Atlantic region.
