New Brunswick Point Calculator 2018

New Brunswick Point Calculator 2018 helps the government in assessing the required eligibility for New Brunswick immigration under New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream which is a program under the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NB PNP) for Canada Immigration. The process for applying for being able to immigrate to New Brunswick Canada as per the New Brunswick information session 2018 is to firs score a minimum of 67 points on the New Brunswick Immigration Points Calculator 2018 gridAfter which the candidates will be eligible to submit their files to the Express Entry pool.

Candidates who are eligible to enter the federal Express Entry pool and are interested in living and working in New Brunswick may apply to the New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream.

This stream allows the province to nominate individuals who are already in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool and who have the necessary education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other factors to help them settle successfully and integrate into New Brunswick’s labor market and communities.

To enter the federal Express Entry pool, candidates must be eligible for one of the three federal economic immigration programs:

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program
  3. Canadian Experience Class

Candidates who meet all eligibility requirements of one of these three federal programs must begin by creating an Express Entry profile. Based on the information the candidate submits, his or her profile will be given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and the top-ranking profiles will be invited to apply for permanent residence. Receiving a Provincial or Territorial Nomination will boost the candidate’s score by 600 CRS points, greatly increasing his or her chance of being invited to apply for permanent residence.
