Provincial Nominee Programs In New Brunswick And Nova Scotia.

New Brunswick’s business program requires only $300,000 net worth compared to the $800,000 net worth required by the federal program.

New Brunswick’s business program requires only $300,000 net worth compared to the $800,000 net worth required by the federal program. This lower requirement makes this program very appealing for business people who want to come to Canada.

New Brunswick also has a Skilled Worker Family Support Program. This program is for people who need to come to New Brunswick to support their family who are already living there. There is an age restriction of between 21- and 49-years-old, and both the applicant and the person already living in New Brunswick must meet the required criteria.

Nova Scotia’s Provincial Skilled Worker Program helps bring to Canada children who are over the 22-year-old federal age limit and who are not dependent. If the child has a minimum of 1 year of work experience and comes with his or her parents who are successful PNP candidates, then he or she can be included in the program. Therefore, unlike the Federal Skilled Worker, this program will facilitate families with older children who may be working or out of school to bring the whole family.
