The Provincial Nominee Program accelerates the immigration process by providing a Certificate of Nomination, which can lead to faster processing of a permanent resident application by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Nominations are granted at the sole discretion of the Government of New Brunswick. A nomination certificate does not guarantee the issuance of a permanent resident visa by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
You must meet all Canadian immigration regulations including a medical examination and security and criminal checks. Successful applicants and dependent family members will each receive a permanent resident visa. Final decisions on permanent resident visas are the sole responsibility of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
