New Brunswick’s Express Entry Stream is now open to candidates if they meet certain criteria. The New Brunswick’s Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), started accepting expressions of interest in its Express Entry Labor Market on November 28. New Brunswick can now nominate candidates to the Federal Express Entry System to get permanent residence.
The Federal Express Entry System is in control of the candidates that qualify for Canada’s Federal High Skilled immigration programs. The programs are; Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Trades Class.
Express Entry candidates who get nominated by New Brunswick are given 600 extra points to go to their Express Entry score. This increases their chances of receiving an invitation to apply for permanent residence.
Candidates are expected to meet the following criteria
- They must have an Express Entry profile with a job seeker validation code and a valid Express Entry profile number
- The applicant must be living and working in New Brunswick
- They must have an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) to prove that they have the equivalent of a Canadian high school diploma
- The applicant must provide proof that their position is at National Occupational Classification code O, A, or B.
- The applicant must have had a valid language test and scored an equivalent of Canadian Language Benchmark 7 in English or French for listening, reading, speaking, and writing.
