New Brunswick launches new immigration pilot for international graduates

The pilot aims to facilitate permanent residency for international students who have graduated from one of 19 eligible programs of study.

New Brunswick has unveiled a new immigration pilot project for international students who graduate from four private career colleges in the province.

Starting April 1, 2022, international students who graduate from the 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 Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

The PNP allows Canadian provinces and territories to identify immigration candidates who can meet their local economic needs. Many PNP streams are geared towards international, some are specifically tailored to them.
