New Brunswick’s Express Entry Labour Market Stream reopens

Expressions of Interest have been invited from skilled workers with work experience in one of the 10 occupation categories including software engineering. The applicants must be eligible for Express Entry’s Federal Skilled Worker Class.

The stream is open to candidates with work experience in one of the following priority occupations:

A major condition for applying is that the applicants must have attended the one of the information sessions of NBPNP in the previous 24 months.

It is not necessary for the applicants to have an existing profile in the federal Express Entry system. But if they are nominated by New Brunswick, they will have to create a profile.  The candidates have to score a minimum of 67 out of 100 points in the selection factors and meet eligibility criteria for the Federal Skilled Worker Class.

The last time the Express Entry Labour Market stream of New Brunswick was opened was in September 2017.

EOIs are ranked according to:
