The Express Entry New Brunswick Labour Market Stream has temporarily reopened to Expressions of Interest from skilled workers with work experience in software engineering and nine other occupation categories.
In an update published January 30, the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) reported that the stream is opening to those with work experience in one of the 10 following priority occupations:
Potential applicants to this stream must also have attended one of the NBPNP’s information sessions in the previous 24 months.
Potential applicants are not required to have an existing profile in the federal Express Entry system but they will have to create one if they are successfully nominated by New Brunswick. As a result, the NBPNP will only consider potential applicants who score a minimum of 67 points out of 100 in the selection factors and meet the eligibility criteria for the Federal Skilled Worker Class.
This is the second opening of Express Entry New Brunswick Labour Market Stream since September 2017 that has targeted Information and Communications Technology workers, among others.
To be considered under this stream, you must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the NBPNP. In order to submit an EOI, the NBPNP says all applicants must meet the eligibility criteria for the Express Entry New Brunswick Labour Market Stream “including a valid and current language exam, an educational credential assessment, sufficient funds, relevant work experience, and all other criteria.” For more information on the eligibility requirements, please consult this page.
New Brunswick EOIs are assessed and ranked according to:
EOIs can be emailed to email@example.com. The subject line of your email must include the location and date of the information session that an applicant attended and their job title and NOC code.
Once the stream closes again, the NBPNP says it will only be accepting EOIs from individuals currently working in New Brunswick or individuals with a job offer from a company in New Brunswick. The NBPNP will also continue to accept EOIs from candidates whose first language is French and who have experience in one of the 10 priority occupations listed above.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System points toward their Express Entry score.
