New Brunswick to Host Information Session for Select Food Production Workers

Published on: September 15th, 2021

New Brunswick will be holding an online information session this fall 2021 for candidates with experience in select fish and seafood labourer occupations, roles relating to food production and processing, or machine and process operating.

Candidates with experience in one of seven select occupations relating to the food industry are invited to register for New Brunswick’s upcoming information session. Candidates that are successful at the recruitment mission may become eligible to apply for Canadian permanent residence through the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NB PNP) or the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP).

Interested candidates will be asked to provide information and documentation on their work history and educational background. Only candidates selected by New Brunswick will be invited to attend the international recruitment event.

Registration to attend this online event is open now on the New Brunswick government webpage.

Which occupations are targeted for New Brunswick’s upcoming event?

Candidates with experience in one of the following occupations in the past five years are invited to register for New Brunswick’s upcoming information session:

7445 – Other repairers and servicers- Net Cleaning Technician

8441 – Fishing vessel deckhands

Why choose New Brunswick?

The New Brunswick Provincial Nomination Program (NBPNP) hosts a number of streams designed to bring newcomers to the province that can fill local employment gaps. Candidates that receive a nomination under one of New Brunswick’s programs may be invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada.

The province of New Brunswick is also a participant in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP). The program helps employers in Canadian maritime provinces address labour-market shortages by making it easier to hire foreign nationals. Individuals attending the New Brunswick information session may be considered for these two programs.
