With the advent of the pandemic, some jobs have become more in-demand in New Brunswick than others.

INTERESTED IN MIGRATING TO NEW BRUNSWICK? Having years of work experience allows you to apply for permanent residence through Canada’s federal economic class programs such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). In order to apply under the Express Entry system, you will need to create a profile on the Canadian government's website. Only skilled workers are able to submit an application.  All jobs listed above are considered skilled, except for: ▪︎Nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates (NOC 3413) ▪︎Transport truck drivers (NOC 7511). OTHER PATHWAYS There are other pathways for migrating to Canada than the Express Entry. For starters, New Brunswick has its own Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) that offers immigration options for persons with skilled work experience such as the New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream for those who have received a full-time permanent job offer in the province. In addition to these pathways, there is also the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP). This is a fast-track program that allows employers to hire foreign nationals for jobs that they would otherwise be unable to fill. Employers need to be in either New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, or Prince Edward Island in order to be eligible to hire foreigners through the AIP. 

One of the most attractive features and major advantage of the program is that employers do not need to get a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which is a document that proves that there are no Canadian citizens or permanent residents available for the job. #AIP #expressentry  #jobsinCanada  #NBPNP #NewBrunswick Source:
