The New Brunswick Critical Worker Pilot is a program designed to address critical labour shortages in various sectors and regions of the province. It seeks to attract skilled workers to occupations that are difficult to fill and will continue to be so in the future. The program is employer-driven, and interested candidates must apply through the participant employer, as the program does not accept direct applications from individuals.

Employers participating in the program are selected based on their demonstrated experience and consistent use of both provincial and federal economic immigration programs over at least the past three years. These employers must also provide enhanced support for newcomer settlement, skills development, and language training for their employees. While the program is limited in scope, its performance will be evaluated regularly, and opportunities for participation may present themselves in the future.
