Immigrating to Fredericton
If you are interested in applying for Canadian Permanent Residency, there are two required steps and a number of available federal and provincial immigration programs to choose from.
The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the first step in a two-step application process for a permanent resident visa to Canada. It allows the Government of New Brunswick to recruit and select immigrants who intend to settle in the province, and have the skills, education, and work experience needed to make a contribution to labour market and economic needs.
Apply to Immigration and Citizenship Canada for a Permanent Resident Visa. Within six (6) months of receiving your nominee certificate, apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for your permanent resident visa. You, your spouse and dependents must meet requirements for medical, security and criminal admissibility, and in some cases you may be asked to go for an interview. CIC has the final authority to issue a permanent resident visa.
