Breaking News: As of September 6, 2013, the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program's business stream is temporarily on hold! The business category allows investors to open new businesses or purchase existing businesses in the province of New Brunswick. There are only so many spaces each year however this year the program has already received more than the usual number of applications. This pause does not affect those who applied before September 6, 2013 but anyone who applied after that date will have their application rejected. There is no information as to when the program will relaunch but it will likely be sometime in 2014. If you are looking to move to Canada through a business program, you should look into other provinces, as the federal investor program is on hold as well.
