International graduates and the NB Skilled Worker stream
Under the NB Skilled Worker stream of the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), international graduates on a federal post-graduate work permit whose occupation falls under NOC skill-level D are not eligible to apply to the program.
However, as a temporary measure in response to the challenges posed by the continuing COVID pandemic, the Province of New Brunswick will accept applications under the NB Skilled Worker stream from international graduates working in New Brunswick in a NOC D position and who meet the following criteria:
- you meet eligibility criteria of the NB Skilled Worker stream;
- you are a graduate of a New Brunswick designated post-secondary institution; and
- you hold a federal Post-graduation work permit that was issued upon graduation from that New Brunswick
This measure is temporary, and applications meeting these criteria must be submitted on or before April 30, 2021.
