Opportunities NB launches Immigration Navigator service

New Brunswick Government

Opportunities NB has implemented a new Immigration Navigator service to improve the experience of immigrating to New Brunswick.

A release states the service will help potential and active immigration candidates, information seekers, and prospective entrepreneurs navigate the immigration process and support employers' access to skilled workers.

Employers are also encouraged to use the Immigration Navigator service when they have questions about hiring international workers or newcomers already living in the province.

Government says total immigration nominations have more than doubled since 2017, francophone nominations have nearly tripled in the same timeframe, and international student nominations have more than tripled since 2019.

The province says it also seeking more nominations and faster processing time from the federal government to ease demographic challenges and help meet the labour needs of employers.

The Immigration Navigator service can be reached by calling 1-833-799-7966 (toll-free within North America), 506-799-7901 (outside North America) or by emailing immigrationnav@navnb.ca.
