New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP)

NBPNP is a provincial immigration program made possible through an agreement with the Government of Canada. As an economic program, the NBPNP selects, and nominates, qualified business people and skilled workers from around the world who will live in New Brunswick and contribute to the local economy.

Express Entry Labour Market Stream

Express Entry is a new online application management system introduced by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in January 2015. Express Entry will change Canada’s immigration system into one that is faster and more responsive to economic and labour market needs.
The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) has developed and launched its Express Entry Labour Market Stream (EELMS). This stream allows the NBPNP to use CIC’s Express Entry system to meet New Brunswick’s specific labour market and demographic needs.

The NBPNP is only accepting expression of interest (EOI) forms from individuals who demonstrate that they have:

 

  • A connection to New Brunswick as described below; or
  • Attended a NBPNP information session in person in the past two years (no more than two years prior to the submission of an EOI); or
  • IT skills (Currently not accepting Open Category EOIs).
