Exploratory Visits Business Stream

Many business owners are moving to our province through the Entrepreneurial Stream of the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP).

The Entrepreneurial Stream was developed specifically for experienced business owners and senior managers who wish to become permanent residents in Canada by owning a business in New Brunswick and managing it, while residing in the province.

More details about NBPNP – Entrepreneurial Stream are available in the relevant section of the provincial government’s website: here is the link.

If you are planning to immigrate through the Entrepreneurial Stream, you will need to come to the province on a brief exploratory visit, before you finally move to New Brunswick and set up a business here.

The exploratory visit will help you familiarise yourself with the province and its people, understand local markets and business context, and choose the optimal strategy for your future investment into New Brunswick.

The Saint John Newcomers Centre is the first point of contact for people coming on exploratory visits to the Greater Saint John area. The visits are offered in both English and French.

Let us know in advance of your visit, and we will put together a visit program for you to make the most of your time in Saint John. We will arrange meetings for you with the City Council, Enterprise Saint John, Business Immigrant Mentorship Program and other relevant organisations, so that you get a full picture of what living and doing business in Saint John is like.
