New Brunswick is now accepting applications for permanent residency from eligible laborers. The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) has opened the Skilled Worker with Employer Support (NBPNP) for Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) holders working in occupations classified as National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level D.

NOC Skill Level D classification is used for occupations that only require on-the-job training, for example, fruit pickers, cleaners, oil field workers, etc. Applicants in such occupations can apply for the NBPNP until April 30, 2021. 

Who is Eligible for the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP)?

To qualify for the NBPNP, you must have status as a temporary resident and meet the following criteria:

  • Meet the eligibility criteria for the Skilled Worker with Employer Support stream
  • Be a graduate from a designated post-secondary institution in New Brunswick
  • Hold a valid PGWP acquired after graduation 

Who is Eligible for the Skilled Worker with Employer Support (NBPNP) Stream?

To be eligible for the Skilled Worker with Employer Support stream, you must:

  • Have a valid job offer from an employer based in New Brunswick for a full-time, permanent position
  • Demonstrate your ability to perform the job and be offered a competitive wage
  • Have your employer support your application 
  • Apply for the appropriate license or certification, if required

If you are eligible for this stream, then you will be scored based on your education level, age, language proficiency, work experience and other factors out of 100. To qualify for a provincial nomination, you require at least 60 points out of 100. 

If you are between the ages of 19 and 55, then you are eligible for this program. You must score at least a level 4 on the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) for English or French to demonstrate language proficiency. 

You must have at least a high school diploma or a foreign equivalent supported by an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report obtained less than 5 years ago. 

You must have at least 1 year of work experience unless you graduated from a designated learning institution in New Brunswick with a 1-year diploma, degree or certificate program. Your foreign work experience will also get you points.

You can score additional points for working in priority sectors such as education, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and business service centers. 

Additional points are also granted for having a connection to the province in the form of previous education, employment or extended family.
