The New in New Brunswick is more important today than ever before.
When we stop and think about what makes us proud to live in New Brunswick, one of the first things that comes to mind is the diversity of our two official languages, cultures and customs we get to experience on a daily basis. Add to that our world-renowned, friendly nature, and you’ve got the perfect recipe to welcome newcomers looking to help our province continue to grow and flourish.
Today, newcomers from all over the world, including other parts of Canada, are considering making New Brunswick their home– to be part of our growing communities as valuable participants in our workforce and in helping to build the fabric of our communities.
Attracting new New Brunswickers will help all of our citizens by increasing productivity, exports and boosting R&D and commercialization. This will lead to more service businesses, more restaurants and more retail which equals more jobs for New Brunswickers.
