APPLICATION PROCEDURE

JOB OFFER APPLICANT

1. Complete the self-Assessment Score Sheet to determine if you qualify to be considered under this program. You must obtain a minimum of 50 points to proceed.

2. If you score at least 50 points, you should initiate a search for employment in New Brunswick. Finding and negotiating an offer of employment is your responsibility. Your application cannot proceed until you have a guaranteed job offer from a New Brunswick employer for work in New Brunswick.

Note: NBJobNet provides you with the opportunity to enter your resume in the provincial database of potential employees which is available to all New Brunswick employers. This is available online at http://nbjobnet.gnb.ca/

Your job search can also include using your links with professional or trade contacts, family, community or service groups.

More information on New Brunswick's labour market and useful tools for an employment search are found on our web site at: http://www.nb.workinfonet.ca/

3. For greater information about immigrating to Canada, obtain and read an Immigration Canada Guide for Independent Applicants: For candidates nominated by provinces under the Provincial Nominee Program and Kit for Independent Applicants which are available directly from the Canadian visa post serving your country or by internet, under "Applications" at http://www.cic.gc.ca.

4. When a job has been offered to you and you have indicated in writing your acceptance of the offer, the employer will complete a Guaranteed Job Offer Form (NBPNP 004). This form is included in the kit for your information or available from the New Brunswick Investment and Immigration.

5. You will now complete the application forms provided in this kit and gather required supplementary documentation for both the New Brunswick Supplementary Information Form (NBPNP 001) and for the Application for Permanent Residence in Canada (Immigration application Form -Independent -IMM 0008). Make the necessary copies for your spouse and dependents over 18 years of age. When the forms are completed, make photocopies of all forms and documents for your records.

DO NOT REQUEST A POLICE CERTIFICATE/CLEARANCE OR MEDICAL EXAMINATION AT THIS TIME AND DO NOT PREPARE THE PAYMENT FOR PROCESSING FEES OR RIGHT OF LANDING FEES. THESE WILL BE REQUIRED LATER. THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL FEES FOR THE NEW BRUNSWICK PROGRAM.

6. Organize your forms and documents according to the Document Checklist. Place these in a sealed envelope and mail to the following address:

Investment and Immigration
Department of Business New Brunswick
P.O. Box 6000
Fredericton, New Brunswick
E3B 5H1

7. Your application will be assessed by New Brunswick Program Officers against the same factors and criteria listed in the self-Assessment Score Sheet. You will be advised in writing of the results of this assessment. If there is a difference between the score that you assign yourself and the score assigned by the New Brunswick Program Officer, the Officer's assessment will prevail.

8. Successful applicants will be contacted by New Brunswick Program Officers with further instructions, including requirements for Police Certificates/Clearances and Processing and Right of Landing Fees levied by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

9. When all requirements have been met, the Department of Business New Brunswick will send a Nomination Certificate, along with your complete immigration application, to the Canadian Visa Office that serves your geographic area.

Please note that nomination under the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program does not constitute approval of your application for immigration to Canada. Final authority rests solely with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to issue immigrant visas.
