Eligible labourers in New Brunswick who want to become Canadian permanent residents can now apply for a provincial nomination.

The New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream is now open to Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) holders who are working in jobs that are classified as NOC skill-level D. These jobs usually call for on-the-job training, and include fruit pickers, cleaning staff, as well as oil field workers.

Temporary workers working in these types of occupations will be able to apply for New Brunswick’s Provincial Nominee Program up until April 30, 2021, according to a media release.

The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) will accept applications from temporary residents who meet the following criteria:

  • you meet all eligibility criteria of the NB Skilled Worker stream;
  • you are a graduate of a New Brunswick designated post-secondary institution (DLI); and
  • you hold a PGWP that was issued upon graduation from that New Brunswick institution.
