This article deals with the receipt of your Invitation to Apply (ITA) from NBPNP. It is a part of a series of posts called “Our Canada Immigration Journey“. We will be releasing a number of posts under this series in the next weeks.
We hope that this series will help guide you in your own journey of achieving that dream of living your life in Canada.
At this point of your application, you’re probably still waiting to qualify in the next draw of CIC.
As you might have realized by now, it’s going to be a bit of a wait. Especially if you have relatively low CRS points. That’s primarily the main reason why people look for Canadian provinces that still have open Provincial Nominee Programs.
Believe us when we say that Provincial Nominee Programs work. This was the pathway that worked for us here in Roadtripping Juans.
Now, if you followed our previous article in this series, your Expression of Interest should already be with New Brunswick. Or any province of your choice where you submitted your application.
For New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP), it will take approximately 2 months for them to provide you with an Invitation to Apply, if you’re successful. This is because NBPNP staff performs an initial review of your application to ensure your job experience and qualifications are a match to their forecast labor requirements and future demand.
The Invitation to Apply, at least in the case of New Brunswick, is in the form of an email similar to the photo below. With recent updates in the program processes, the format might be different from ours.
For us, we only had 45 calendar days to complete and submit our application. It will probably be the same for you. In any case, do take note of that as NBPNP is a stickler to timelines. Although there are ways to extend it as needed.
Once you have your ITA from NBPNP, it’s time to make sure you have all the evidences that support the qualifications you claimed leading to your ITA. We hope that you have, at least, the majority of the requirements already with you prior to applying.
We’ll discuss most of the requirements and the process of submitting your documents in our next article.
