Through these information sessions and job fairs, New Brunswick immigration officials are able to deliver information on living and working in the province face-to-face with interested applicants. These sessions are both informative and employer-driven recruitment events. Through job fairs, New Brunswick employers are able to discuss specific job opportunities with invited candidates.

Later this month, New Brunswick representatives will be hosting four days of immigration information sessions in the Philippines. Registration to attend these events is open now on the New Brunswick government webpage!

These information sessions are sector specific, meaning they are targeting skilled workers in particular fields. If you match the following work experience description, these sessions are for you!

NOC 3012 – Registered nurses
NOC 3413 – Nurse aides
NOC 3233 – Licensed practical nurses
NOC 9463 – Fish and seafood plant workers

NOC refers to the National Occupation Classification system, a four-digit code that corresponds with a specific job description in the Canadian labour market. You will need an NOC code in order to apply for economic immigration to Canada. To determine your NOC code, you can visit the Canadian government website.

Why pick New Brunswick?

New Brunswick offers its own immigration program for those interested in living in the province. The New Brunswick Provincial Nomination Program (NBPNP) looks to bring in qualified skilled workers to the province in order to fill local employment gaps. Applicants that are selected for the NBPNP will gain 600 additional points towards their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. With a CRS cut-off hovering around 440 this year, these extra points could be the factor that pushes your profile past the cut-off and gets you an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.

As well, New Brunswick is a participant in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) for east-coast provinces. The AIPP is an employer-driven immigration program, and attempts to address labour-market shortages in Canada’s maritime provinces. Interested candidates attending the New Brunswick information sessions will be considered for these two programs.
