Foreign nationals who want to bring their skills, education, and work experience to New Brunswick may qualify for the New Brunswick Express Entry Stream.
The provincial immigration stream is aligned with the federal government’s Express Entry system, which manages applications through three immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class.
In order to qualify for the New Brunswick Express Entry stream, candidates first need to create an Express Entry profile, where they will be given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score based on their work experience, education, age and language proficiency.
If those in the federal pool receive a provincial nomination from the New Brunswick Express Entry stream they will receive an additional 600 CRS points. This effectively guarantees that candidate an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a Federal Express Entry draw.
Once candidates are in the Express Entry pool, and can meet certain province-specific eligibility requirements, they can create an Expression of Interest (EOI) with New Brunswick’s portal.
On occasion, New Brunswick will invite candidates directly from the Express Entry pool in response to labour market needs.
