New Brunswick Critical Worker Pilot | Immigration To Canada Free of Cost

The New Brunswick Critical Worker Pilot is a program designed to address the shortage of workers in different sectors and regions of the province. It aims to attract skilled workers to occupations that are difficult to fill in New Brunswick. The pilot program will run for five years.


The Critical Worker Pilot is focused on recruiting skilled workers through participating employers. Candidates who are interested in the program need to apply through the employer and cannot apply directly.

Participating employers in the pilot program were selected based on their experience and use of provincial and federal economic immigration programs. These employers have also demonstrated their ability to provide support for settlement, skills development, and language training for employees.

Currently, the pilot program has limited participation and is not open to broader applications. However, the program’s performance will be regularly evaluated, and there may be opportunities for broader participation in the future.
