Registered Nurses (NOC 3012), Licensed Practical Nurses (NOC 3233) and personal support workers are usually in great demand in New Brunswick. The Canadian province attracts a high number of foreign healthcare professionals as well as their families with attractive employment opportunities in either official language (English or French).

The Canadian province of New Brunswick is planning to host virtual immigration information sessions to benefit thousands of immigration aspirants from Asian countries.

The information sessions serve as a platform for Nursing professionals and their family members to know in detail about the requirements of qualifying for various economic immigration programs of the province, as well as the professional immigration pathways that will be open this Fall 2021, i.e. September-December. 

How to Register for the Session? 

Registrations for the session will take place only via online mode. 

All interested aspirants are required to provide detailed information regarding your professional training as well as experience in the nursing and healthcare sector. Those with a spouse or partner need to provide information regarding their professional experience also.

Other Ways To Qualify For Canadian Immigration for Nurses

Healthcare professionals can qualify to receive a direct permanent residency (PR) in Canada through Express Entry under two immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Canada Experience Class (CEC). 

If not a job offer in Canada, Nursing professionals will be required to demonstrate enough work experience outside Canada or within Canada and also score at least CLB 7 in English or NCLC 7 in French on all four language competencies: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Applying for Canada PR through a successful provincial nomination is also a popular pathway for immigration. It can open the doors for receiving permanent residence in Canada and eventually Canadian citizenship in due course of time. 

Canada Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are unique to every province and align with the federal Express Entry as ‘enhanced’ or ‘base’ nomination streams. 

‘Enhanced’ streams are linked to the Express Entry system and this allows provinces to directly nominate an eligible candidate who is registered in the federal pool. The advantage for Express Entry candidates to get the provincial nomination through such ‘enhanced’ streams is that they gain 600 points on their CRS score, effectively ensuring their ITA for Canada PR.

‘Base’ streams are those that are not linked to the Express Entry system. They include New Brunswick Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN), British Columbia’s Healthcare Professional (Skills Immigration pathway), Quebec’s Regular Skilled Worker Program, and the Quebec Experience Program are all avenues that nurses can pursue.

The process for an internationally educated nurse (IEN) to become licensed to practice as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or a registered nurse (RN) in New Brunswick can take between 12 and 24 months.

Additionally, Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIP) provides an alternative pathway to work & settle in New Brunswick. Further, it was only recently reported that AIP has been successful in improving the short-term outcomes for immigrants.
