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.

You will submit all required forms and supporting documents.

Immigration Program Officers review applications based on eligibility requirements. 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. To determine if you meet the requirements of the Program, carefully review the information in this Guide before submitting your application.

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.
