New Brunswick has created a new immigration pathway for truck drivers under the existing New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program skilled worker stream.

The new stream, effective October 1 2020, comes in response to feedback on staff shortages from industry stakeholders, the province says.

It specifically targets National Occupation Classification (NOC) 7511 for Transport Truck Drivers.

Importantly eligibility requirements include two years of work experience in the last five, including nine months in New Brunswick, plus a full-time, permanent job offer that falls under NOC 7511.

Candidates must also have a valid New Brunswick Class 1 Driving License and intend to live in the province.

Selection factors are the same as the existing New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream.
