New Brunswick immigration has temporarily reduced the work experience requirement for its truck driver stream, targeting candidates under NOC 7511. From March 20 until September 30, 2021, truckers only need six months of New Brunswick experience to qualify for the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program stream. Previously, candidates required nine months of New Brunswick experience.
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.
