New Brunswick updated its guide for Skilled Worker Stream
The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour has updated the official guide for Skilled Worker Stream of the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP). To be eligible for the stream, candidates need to have a genuine full-time job offer, to be offered a competitive wage and to have the required certification for regulated occupations. Earlier, candidates had to score 50 points to be selected for the Skilled Worker Stream. The new requirement is to get 60 points out of 100. The minimum eligible age was reduced to 19 years. The new minimum language score is now CLB 4. New Brunswick has also changed the distribution of points for age, language, education, work experience, job offer, and adaptability factors.

The Canadian population growth is driven by immigration
It is predicted that Canada’s population will grow to 55 million in fifty years. According to Statistics Canada, this growth will be motivated by immigration. Last year, Canada’s population was 37.1 million, with Ontario and Alberta having the fastest growing population. Statistics Canada simulated nine different scenarios that will impact Canada’s population growth. The scenarios took into consideration different province’s population growth rate and the population’s ageing rate. It was revealed that immigration will be the primary driving factor that will motivate Canadian population growth in the next fifty years. This was the same situation back in 1990. Statistics Canada also discovered that some provinces will face population growth, and some will face a decline. Alberta had the fastest growth in population and is predicted to grow even more in the upcoming 25 years. It is predicted that Alberta’s population may reach 7.3 million, an increase of 3 million from 2018. Some also predict that Alberta’s population may likely exceed British Columbia.
