PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

New Brunswick is developing an inventory of skilled candidates who may match New Brunswick Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project (AIPP) employer’s future needs, including individuals experienced in the following occupations:

  • Seamstresses, sewing machine operator- made-to-measure garments (NOC 9446 and 6342)
  • Food industry worker (production line operator, laborer)
  • Aquaculture worker ( fish processing line, canning )
  • Metal industry laborer and machines operators
  • Cooks

Individuals who will be part of the AIPP inventory must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • An IELTS score of at least 5.0 for all four language skills
  • A completed educational credential assessment with at least the equivalent to a completed Canadian high school diploma
  • One year of work experience in one of the above occupations, within the past 3 years
  • Liquid funds of at least $3,075 CAD plus additional funds for accompanying family members

 

Please note that not all attendees will be invited to apply to the AIPP.  We will be applying specific additional criteria later, which may include:

  • Higher language fluency than the minimum requirements of the program
  • Candidates with families
  • Candidates with connections to New Brunswick

 

This is the first step in the Province’s direct market research on the labour market match between Filipino skilled workers in the above sectors and provincial employers’ labour market needs.  This exploratory mission will be followed by a later mission (late October/early November 2017) whereby employers, in partnership with a licensed Philippines recruitment agency, will come to the Philippines and directly interview a pre-selected number of skilled workers for jobs in New Brunswick. 

 

The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) is also conducting a series of Express Entry Labour Market Stream information sessions, in order to build an inventory of highly skilled people who match up with projected future job openings in key sectors. Individuals with the following minimum qualifications are encouraged to register for one of the posted sessions:

Express Entry information session registrant criteria:

  • An IELTS score that is a minimum of a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 7
    • All registrants must have a current and valid IELTS
    • A completed educational credential assessment with at least the equivalent to a two-year completed diploma
    • Have at least one year minimum of proven, full-time work experience (or equivalent) in one of the following sectors:
      • Information systems analysts and consultants (2171)

Please note that not all attendees will be invited to apply to the NBPNP Express Entry Labour Market Stream.  We will be applying specific additional criteria later, which may include:

  • Prioritizing individuals whom NB employers have expressed an interest in hiring
  • Higher language fluency than the minimum requirements of the program
  • Candidates with families
  • Candidates with connections to New Brunswick

 NOTE: The home care sector is a priority for New Brunswick, and there are many opportunities to work as a support worker or resident attendant, in addition to nursing.

*Also, nursing is regulated in New Brunswick, and to practice as a nurse means you must be able to have your credentials recognized and be eligible for licensure, which may take additional time and coursework.

Retention and Adaptability:

The Province of New Brunswick has a responsibility to select people who show a high likelihood of becoming economically established in the province.
