Upon receiving this nomination, foreign nationals may apply for permanent residency in Canada. NBPNP accepts applications in the following categories:

Individuals who own and actively manage a business in this province can apply for permanent residency under this stream. A minimum net worth of CAD 600,000 must be demonstrated, and at least CAD 300,000 must be readily available and free of debt.
Strategic Initiative Stream
Francophone workers who wish to live and work permanently in New Brunswick, and possess the necessary skills, education, and work experience, will be eligible for this stream.
Atlantic Immigration Program
Four Atlantic provinces are participating in this Atlantic Immigration Program initiative with the Government of Canada to recruit foreign workers to fill labour market shortages in the country and New Brunswick is one of them. To apply for permanent residency under this program, foreign nationals must be either residing abroad or have temporary status in Canada at the time of applying. They should have a job offer from a designated employer that meets the requirements of this immigration to apply under this program.
