UPDATE: The temporary opening of this stream to candidates outlined in this story ended January 31.
The Express Entry New Brunswick Labor Market Stream had reopened temporarily to Expressions of Interest from skilled workers who had a 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:
NOC 2173: Software engineers and designers
NOC 2171: Information systems analysts and consultants
NOC 2281: Computer network technician
NOC 2172: Database analysts and data administrators
NOC 2174: Computer programmers and interactive media developers
NOC 6322: Cooks
NOC 0631: Restaurant and food service managers
NOC 1311: Accounting technicians and bookkeepers
NOC 0311: Managers in health care
NOC 6211: Retail sales supervisors
Potential applicants to this stream must also have attended one of the NBPNP’s information sessions in the previous 2 years.
Potential candidates 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 factors of selection and meet the eligibility criteria for the Federal Skilled Worker Class.
This is the second opening of Express Entry New Brunswick Labor 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, all applicants must meet the eligibility criteria for the Express Entry New Brunswick Labor Market Stream which also includes a valid and current language exam, an educational credential assessment, adequate funds and relevant work experience.
New Brunswick EOIs are assessed and ranked according to:
- Highest score.
- Evidence of training and experience in a high priority labor sector.
- Demonstrated ability to become economically established in the province.
- High probability of contributing positively to New Brunswick’s labor market and economy.
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 firm 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 above mentioned 10 priority occupations.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System points toward their Express Entry score.
