New Brunswick PNP Update: New Pilot Project for Critical Workers

Last Updated On : November 15 , 2022

The provincial government has made up a 5-year pilot project plan with the federal government known as New Brunswick Critical Worker Pilot (NBCWP). This Pilot program focuses on retaining newcomers to Canada and recognizing their work for the province.

With the NBCWP, new immigrants will receive settlement services, including skill and language training.

The NBCWP will work with six selected employers in New Brunswick, which are:

· 1. Cooke Aquaculture Inc.;
· 2. Groupe Savoie Inc.;
· 3. Groupe Westco;
· 4. Imperial Manufacturing;
· 5. J.D. Irving Ltd.;
· 6. McCain Foods;

Guidelines for Employers: Pilot Project NBPNP

The six selected employees will have to follow some guidelines as described under this pilot program as following:

· Employers have to ensure that new immigrants should not face any problems in housing and transportation settlement. The settlement should be so that new immigrants can remain in Canada for an extended period.
· Employers should plan their human resources in-depth for hiring and recruiting highly skilled newcomers who are looking for Canadian immigration and provide essential training for enhancement.
· Ensure every needy immigrant should get 200-hour language training.
· Give new immigrants advice and assistance if they decide to seek their Canadian secondary education equivalency.

This pilot project is for 5 Years and will be evaluated after the same interval so that it continues to be receptive to immigration needs and accomplishes what the provincial government wants.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP):

This program allows participating provinces and territories to nominate eligible economic immigration candidates for Canadian permanent residence. Through a network of Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP), almost all of Canada’s ten provinces and three territories can nominate skilled worker candidates for admission to Canada. PNPs exist in all Canadian provinces and territories (excluding Quebec and Nunavut)

From the recent Labour Force Survey in September, New Brunswick is one of the provinces where labour market employment is in trend. Also, as per the new pilot program, the employer must train you in professional skills.

It is for 5 Years and will be re-evaluated after the same period.

New Brunswick provides Professional development & language training to newcomers in Canada as guidelines by NBCWP Program.

No, you can immigrate through AIPP, EE, NBPNP, Skilled Worker Stream, and Business Immigration.
