The Express Entry stream of New Brunswick is finally reopened to Expression of Interest after a temporary shutdown in September. New Brunswick’s Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), reopened its stream in November 28th to allow Express Entry to eligible candidates.

The Express Entry stream is a new trend to the NBPNP. Currently, those who want to move and settle in New Brunswick are required to fill an expression of interest form and submit it to NBPNP. The qualified candidates are picked if they pass more of the following recommendations.

  • They should have achieved the highest score as per the education system in their respective countries. An added advantage is given to those who have excelled in their academic work throughout their learning process.
  • There should be evidence that they have been working and training in a high priority sector as determined by the provincial standards.
  • They should also demonstrate the ability to become economically established once they have relocated to the province. This is verified by their economic history. Research is done to confirm that they have been consistent in filling their taxes.
  • They should not have any criminal records. The applicants need to be people who obey the law to the latter. Those with a bad criminal record are not given a chance because they might bring disturbance to the Province.
  • There should be a high likelihood that the candidates will bring a positive change towards the economy of the province. The immigrants should be ready to delegate maximum effort towards the betterment of New Brunswick.

Express Entry candidates who have been given a nomination by New Brunswick have an additional 600 points advantage over their peers. This increases their chances of becoming permanent Canadian residents due to a high ranking Express Entry ranking score. However, they are five entry criteria that they should meet to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI).

  • They should have a valid Express Entry Profile number.
  • They should be currently living and working in New Brunswick.
  • The EOI should be attached to the National Occupational Classification Code for their current job.
  • They should have valid test scores in all of the four language competencies indicated.
  • They should also have a valid Educational Credential Assessment (ECA).
