New Brunswick Express Entry

In October of this year, the New Brunswick Express Entry PNP was temporarily closed to new submissions. However, as of November 28th, 2018, the province has reopened the stream to new candidates who meet a specific set of criteria (see the full list below). Notably, in order to submit to the program, candidates must already be living and working in New Brunswick at the time of submission.

Like all Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), those who are successful through the NB PNP will be nominated to submit an official application for Canadian permanent residence.

Eligibility Requirements and Application Procedure

In order to be eligible to submit to the New Brunswick Express Entry PNP, candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have an active Express Entry profile
  • Must be currently living and working in New Brunswick
  • Must be working in a position at NOC Code 0, A, or B
  • Must have a valid language test scores in either English or French equal to Canadian Language Benchmark Level 7 (CLB 7)
  • Must have an Educational Credentials Assessment (ECA) showing education equivalent to a Canadian High School diploma

If a person meets those criteria, they are eligible to submit to the program. To apply, a candidate must first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). This document can be downloaded on the New Brunswick PNP website and emailed directly to the program. If an applicant’s EOI meets the requirements of the program, they may be invited to submit an official PNP application.
