About the Province

The world is much bigger than
our eyes can reach!

New Brunswick (NB) the only officially bilingual (English and French) province in Canada. It is a coastal province with beautiful sandy beaches, rocky hills, spectacular valleys and historic architecture that can be found in many cities and towns.

NB is the largest of Canada's 3 maritime provinces with 73,440 km² accommodating a population of 747,101 (the Atlantic provinces are the least populated). Its main cities are Fredericton (capital) Bathurst, Campbellton, Dieppe, Edmundston, Miramichi, Moncton and Saint John.
In New Brunswick, the summers are warm, humid, and rainy; winters are very cold and snowy; and is partly cloudy throughout the year. Throughout the year, the temperature normally ranges from -4 °C to 30 °C and is rarely lower than - 12 °C or higher than 35 °C.

Its economy is based on natural resources which largely depends on forestry, mining and fishing. Tourism, agriculture, small-scale manufacturing and a growing service sector provide balance and diversity.

Labor Market

The native population growth of NB is modest, directly affecting the labor market, so most of the job opportunities are of replacement.

In this scenario, it is important to highlight that the gains in the labor market are driven by immigration. According to research, the province expects to receive approximately 3,900 immigrants
per year and it is estimated that there will be 12,000 openings per year by 2027. Considering these forecasts, a trend towards labor appreciation was also cited in the survey, causing employers to offer more competitive wages and benefits and thus fill market needs faster.
