The New Brunswick Nomination program is one of the most famous Provincial nominee programs in Canada. This program was designed to help the province recruit the right personnel in to the province. It provides a free hand for the province to identify personnel who could fill in the jobs that are currently open in the country. The focus is on recruiting those who possess the required skills, education and domain experience, with which they could contribute actively to the economy of New Brunswick. The applicant will need to have a commitment to live in the province for a given period of time.

New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program has multiple pathways, one for skilled professionals and one for business investors. The province gives equal importance to both of the pathways.

New Brunswick is located in Eastern most corner of Canada. It is one of the 4 Atlantic Provinces. The province has 2 official languages –English and French. Two-third of the population speak English and the rest speak French. Most of the province’s landscape is covered by forest land. The province has tried and maintained its greenery intact. The province also has few indigenous tribes living there. The economy of New Brunswick is driven by agriculture, forestry, tourism, food processing, oil and ship-building.   

Through the New Express Entry Stream Canada, the province chooses aspirants who have expressed an interest to relocate to the province by their submission of Expression of Interest. The program requires the aspirants to qualify through the Express entry stream. Once the selected applicants receive their nomination from the province, they can proceed to apply for Permanent Residency with the IRCC. Getting selected through NBPNP is one of the fastest modes for qualifying for Canada PR program.

This provincial nominee Canada program has other pathways too. One of them is the Employer Support stream which requires the aspirant to have a job offer from an employer local to New Brunswick.

The other major immigration pathway is for the business entrepreneurs. New Brunswick invites business enthusiasts to invest in a running business or a start-up in New Brunswick Entrepreneur Pathway. This is one of the quickest modes to obtain Canada PR for an entrepreneur. It requires that the applicant submit a business plan which should give a detailed sketch of how the applicant would be investing and building the business in the province. The applicant should be able to prove their business management experience or experience of being part of senior management group in a firm. The applicant will also have to prove their strong purpose to live in the province. The applicant will have to participate in the day to day activities of the province. The applicant will have to make the mandatory visit to New Brunswick to conduct a business research before proceeding. They will also have to visit the Immigration program officer for the interview.

On the monetary side, the applicant will need to prove their personal net-worth of a minimum of CAD 0,000. The investor will have to make an investment of a minimum of CAD 5,000. They will also need to demonstrate their language ability in French and English. If the entrepreneur qualifies, then he would obtain a nomination from the province on an immediate basis, unlike other PNP programs which require the investor to first be on work permit in Canada and then apply for nomination from the province. With this nomination, the applicant can proceed to apply for Canada PR.

It is however, important that the aspirant applicant takes guidance from a registered ICCRC Consultant and proceed further.

Migrating to another country is a daunting task and business immigration is quite challenging as it requires the investor to decide where he would be investing along with identifying the right network of people. There could be many situations where the entrepreneur would face road blocks. To combat these it would require support from a certified international investment expert and a Canada Visa Consultant expert. Reach out to them and make the right moves for stress free investment and relocation.
