As Canada continues to invite and welcome thousands of foreign nationals each year with open arms, many of these individuals are actively looking for ways to make Canada their permanent home. There are already numerous pathways for those seeking Canada PR through Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Recently, New Brunswick launched a new PR pathway for international graduates living in Canada looking to settle after graduating from 1 of 4 qualifying colleges who are not eligible for a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP).

In addition to the pathways already created through the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), there is a new pilot pathway starting April 1st, 2022. Those students who have graduated from Atlantic Business College, Eastern College, McKenzie College, or Oulton College and who have studied in one of 19 targeted occupations, will be able to apply to the newest PNP pathway. The program is in collaboration between Opportunities NB (ONB), which is New Brunswick’s leading business development corporation, and the IRCC.
