New Brunswick Express Entry Stream Update

Effective May 20, 2022, Opportunities New Brunswick has temporarily paused the New Brunswick Express Entry Stream. The move comes following a surge in applications for the Stream.

There will be no further letters of Interest (LOI) or Invitations to Apply (ITA) sent while the Stream is paused. This includes applications with eligible connections.   

New Brunswick Express Entry applications submitted May 20, 2022, or later, will not be finalized until further notice.

Please monitor our website for updates. Alternate permanent residency options may be available through the New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream and Atlantic Immigration Program.

Program launch delayed 

The Province of New Brunswick has delayed the start of the Private Career College Graduate Pilot Stream until further notice.

General criteria can be found here. Full program criteria will be available in the coming weeks.  

Located on Canada’s east coast along the Atlantic Ocean, New Brunswick offers a distinct way of life and exciting career opportunities. We value the experiences and skills of newcomers. Our provincial immigration programs allow the Government of New Brunswick to nominate individuals with the greatest ability to become economically established in New Brunswick. These are economic immigration programs and are not intended for family reunification, protected persons or for humanitarian and compassionate reasons.
