New Brunswick Provincial Nomination Program (NBPNP)

NBPNP is an immigration platform that enables the province of New Brunswick to nominate skilled and qualified foreign workers for permanent residence (PR). Foreign workers having the skills to fulfill the labor needs of the local employer may get a nomination. With the help of this nomination, a foreign worker and its dependent can apply to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for PR. NBPNP coordinates with the federal government of Canada and the final decision to grant a PR is taken by the federal government.

 

NBPNP Streams – There are three streams for skilled labor.

 

• Express Entry Labor Market Stream
