Aspiring applicants in this stream are required to have attendance in one of the information sessions conducted by New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program during the preceding 24 months.

  • High score, 
  • Proof of training/experience in a high priority labor sector,

Expression of Interest can be emailed to 

In the subject line of the email, the location, and date of the information session attended by an applicant, the NOC code, and the job title must be included.

Upon the closing of the stream again, the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program will only accept EOIs from persons presently working in New Brunswick or holding a job offer from a company located in New Brunswick.
