Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) – New Brunswick In-Demand Occupations

There are 9 Provinces targeted to candidates with OID-Basis (Occupation in demand – Basis) in a specific occupation, which is in-demand in that particular province. When this is the case, there is usually no need to hold a job offer in order to be eligible to the stream. However, only a few provinces have these kinds of streams, and sometimes there are other factors that would prohibit a candidate living and working outside of Canada from applying.

New Brunswick (NBPNP) has a stream, called NB Express Entry, that accepts applications from candidates without a job offer, but that must have French proficiency (at least CLB7) and score at least 67 points on the Express Entry self-assessment grid.
