EOIs (Expressions of Interest) have been temporarily reopened for New Brunswick’s Express Entry Labour Market Stream from skilled workers in 10 occupations, including software engineering, with work experience.
An update published on 30 January reported that the stream of NBPNP (New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program) is being opened to people with work experience in one of the 10 priority occupations mentioned below:
NOC 2173: Software engineers and designers, NOC 2171: Information systems analysts and consultants, NOC 2281: Computer network technician, NOC 2172: Database analysts and data administrators, NOC 2174: Computer programmers and interactive media developers, NOC 6322: Cooks, NOC 0631: Restaurant and food service managers, NOC 1311: Accounting technicians and bookkeepers, NOC 0311: Managers in health care and NOC 6211: Retail sales supervisors.
Prospective applicants to this stream need to have also attended one of the information sessions of NBPNP in the previous two years. Although an existing profile of theirs is, however, not needed in the federal Express Entry system, they must come up with one if they are successfully nominated by the province.
CIC News reported that only prospective applicants who have at least a score of 67 points out of 100 in the factors for selection and satisfy the eligibility criteria for the Federal Skilled Worker Class will be considered by NBPNP.
Since September 2017, this is said to be the second opening of New Brunswick’s Express Entry Labour Market Stream where workers of Information and Communications Technology are among the ones being targeted.
An EOI has to be submitted by applicants to the NBPNP who want to be considered under this stream. The NBPNP said that for submitting an EOI, eligibility criteria has to be met by all applicants for New Brunswick’s Express Entry Labour Market Stream, including an educational credential assessment, a valid and current language exam, relevant work experience, sufficient funds and all other criteria.
New Brunswick EOIs are evaluated and ranked as per proof of training and experience in a high priority labour sector, the highest score, proven ability to become financially successful in the province and high likelihood of contributing to the labour market and economy of New Brunswick positively.
