New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream
The New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream is designed for Foreign Nationals who possess the skills, education and work experience needed to contribute to New Brunswick’s economy. Candidates must meet the program’s minimum eligibility requirements, have a genuine offer of employment from a New Brunswick Employer and have the full intent to live and work in the province on a permanent basis.
This program will also help New Brunswick employers, unable to fill job vacancies with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, recruit foreign nationals and international graduates whose skills are needed in the province.
There are many reasons to move to New Brunswick (NB). Some people choose to live here to enjoy a more relaxed, healthy, and affordable lifestyle. Others move because of our healthcare and our education systems. Still, others choose New Brunswick to be minutes away from oceans, lakes, rivers, and trails as well as lively urban centres and smaller friendly communities.
