The NBPNP is a provincial stream of Canadian immigration, governed by the Express Entry system. One of the requirements to be eligible to submit an application under the NBPNP is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the government of New Brunswick.
Previously, there were two ways to be eligible for an EOI:
As of now, only candidates who have a connection to New Brunswick are eligible to submit an EOI. Therefore, attending an NBPNP information session no longer guarantees eligibility for an EOI.

Recently, New Brunswick has announced that they will be hosting NBPNP information sessions throughout the month of February in Manila. These information sessions will only be available to Filipino citizens living in the Philippines or abroad. Throughout these sessions, participants will be given information on the upcoming Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project and different opportunities to immigrate to Atlantic Canada. This project is at the federal level and is a completely employer driven stream of immigration. This means that you must have a job offer from a designated Canadian employer working in Atlantic Canada in order to be eligible. Chosen applicants will receive permanent residence and a settlement plan in Canada for when they arrive.
In April 2017, New Brunswick has announced they will return to the Philippines for more information sessions along with major Atlantic Canadian employers who will be looking to meet directly with interested candidates. During these sessions, eligible candidates will get to connect and network with Canadian employers looking to hire. While a formal job offer from an Atlantic Canadian employer is required, a Labour Market Impact Assessment is not. Choosing to attend these sessions is highly encouraged for Citizens of the Philippines interested in working and living in Atlantic Canada.
For a list of info dates, please see the NBPNP website.
