Welcome to New Brunswick

New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program
Business Applicant Stream—Temporary Pause


The Government of New Brunswick will no longer accept new applicants to the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program Business Stream. This pause is effective as of September 6, 2013 and will remain in effect until further notice.

How to Immigrate

The Government of New Brunswick has signed a provincial nominee agreement with the Government of Canada. This allows New Brunswick to play an active role in immigration by selecting applicants to fulfill specific economic needs. Final approval of an applicant and issuing visas is the responsibility of the Government of Canada.
