Canada Immigration Lawyer
This New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program category is meant for foreign nationals who have a permanent full-time job offer from an employer in New Brunswick. For the purposes of New Brunswick immigration law, employers must be able to demonstrate they were unable to find a Canadian citizen or a Canadian permanent resident to fill the position being offered to the foreign national. If all eligibility factors have been met, applicants will then be assessed based on a point system which takes into account five factors including: the applicant’s age, language skills, education, adaptability and work experience. The applicant must score a minimum of 50 points in the selection factors.
- Applicants under this NBPNP category must be between 22 and 50 years of age. The Applicant’s age is assessed on the day the application is received by the New Brunswick PNP office.
- Sufficient proficiency in English or French to fulfill the job duties of their intended occupation. The New Brunswick PNP requires that language tests results are submitted as proof of your proficiency. Exams results submitted must not be older than two years from the time the applicant wrote such exam. Note that as of July 1, 2012, applicants under certain occupations must write mandatory language exams and must achieve minimum test results with respect to their reading, writing, listening and speaking abilities.
- The applicant must provide proof of education, qualifications or licenses needed to fulfill his or her job duties. The applicant must at least have completed their high school education.
- The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program requires that applicants intend to live and work in the province of New Brunswick.
