NBPNP – Entrepreneurial Stream


Novel Coronavirus COVID-19
Effective date: March 13, 2020

At present, there is a need for responsible global action to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. 

For our part, the Province of New Brunswick has made the decision to suspend all non-essential international travel by its staff and representatives in order to avoid exposing any individual, community or nation to an undue or additional risk of infection or transmission of this virus.

To anyone intending to embark on an exploratory visit to our province:

Please do not embark on an exploratory visit at this time. If your travel arrangements are already made and cannot be changed at all, we apologize for any inconveniences that this creates. This measure is being taken in the interest of protecting you and all around you.  

Please note that due to the unpredictability of the situation, it is quite possible that some people or organizations will no longer be able to accommodate you during your visit, and that the objectives of the visit may not be achievable at this time.

We want to encourage you to be aware of the latest World Health Organization (WHO) advisories, including those related to international travel.

The New Brunswick Entrepreneurial Stream is designed for experienced business owners and senior managers who wish to become permanent residents by owning a business in New Brunswick (NB) and managing it, while residing in the Province.

The Government of New Brunswick has moved to an online application service for its provincial immigration programs.

Most people must now apply online. You can only apply on paper if you cannot apply online because of a disability or because there is a problem with the online application. If you unable to apply online due to these reasons the PDF paper forms are available.
