Canada Immigration

The New Brunswick Skilled Worker stream is now open to Canada’s Post-Graduate Work Permit [PGWP] holders working in jobs classified in the National Occupational Classification [NOC] as being under Skill Level D.

The NB Skilled Worker Stream is for foreign nationals that have the education, skills, and work experience required for contributing to the economy of New Brunswick.

In order to immigrate to Canada through this stream, the candidate must –

  • meet the minimum eligibility requirements of the program,
  • have a valid job offer from a NB employer, and

NB employers that are unable to fill job vacancies locally can recruit international graduates and foreign nationals with skills required in the province.
