Government of New Brunswick


The 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 workers from around the world who will live in New Brunswick and contribute to the New Brunswick economy through full time ongoing employment.


As a Skilled Worker Applicant with employer support:
You are between 22 and 55 years of age.
You have sufficient English and, or French language ability to fulfill your job duties.
You have the education, qualifications and, or licenses needed to fulfill your job duties.
You will live and work in New Brunswick.
Your offer of employment is genuine.
You are a permanent full-time employee of a New Brunswick company.
Your job is represented in one of the following National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill levels:
• Skill levels O, A, B
• Skill level C, Category 1, 3, 7, 8, 9
• Skill level D, Category 1, 3, 7, 8, 9
Your job is in an area of skill shortage.
Your job must provide a comparable industry rate of pay.
Your job complies with New Brunswick employment standards.
You will submit all required forms and supporting documents.
You score a minimum of 50 points in the selection factors.


Immigration Program Officers review applications based on eligibility requirements and selection factors. You must meet eligibility requirements. You should also be aware that meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee nomination. Priority will be given to Applicants who have the greatest potential to become economically established in New Brunswick.

Decisions on applications are final. There is no appeal process in the event you are refused. If you are unsuccessful, you may reapply two years from notice that your application has been refused, providing your situation changes substantially and you have new information to submit. You also have the option to apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) immigration programs with New Brunswick as your destination.

If you are nominated by the NBPNP your application is forwarded to a CIC visa office for further evaluation and final decision on permanent resident status. Final decisions on permanent resident visas are the sole responsibility of CIC. You must meet all Canadian immigration regulations including a medical examination and security and criminal checks. You should not make final travel arrangements, dispose of property (personal or business), or give up your job until you receive a permanent resident visa.
