New Brunswick updated guidelines for two immigration streams
After the implementation of the NOC 2021, the Government of New Brunswick updated guidelines for the New Brunswick Skilled Worker and Express Entry streams of the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP). The New Brunswick Skilled Worker Stream makes it easier for employers in the province to recruit foreign nationals and international graduates with skills currently in limited supply. Meanwhile, the New Brunswick Express Entry Stream is designed for workers with the skills and experience needed to boost New Brunswick’s economy.

Canada may face an influx of US tech workers
The list of American tech companies forced to lay off employees is steadily increasing. Many American tech workers who experienced job loss may consider looking north to Canada. This year, US tech company Robinhood has let go of more than 1,000 workers while Glossier got rid of 80 people, the majority from its technology department. Netflix had also eliminated 450 positions by late June. While US tech companies are firing employees, Canadian companies are in dire need of additional tech talent. The cities with the fastest-growing tech sectors, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver, will be the best chance for US tech workers to secure jobs and permanent residency through Canadian economic immigration programs.
