New Brunswick Needs Immigrants

The province of New Brunswick announced that they will be aiming to increase their populations by attracting and accepting more immigrants than ever. New Brunswick announced that they will be tripling the number of immigrants in the province by 2024. The five-year provincial government population growth strategy and action plan were released recently.

What Type of Immigrants are New Brunswick Looking For

The main goal is bringing the annual immigration intake to about one percent of the province’s population. In addition to just increasing the immigration population, New Brunswick wants to retain the immigration population by keeping a one-year retention rate of 85% by 2024. Another big demographic of immigrants that New Brunswick is looking for is french-speaking immigrants. If you are a French speaker you will have a greater chance of getting accepted to the province. The Progressive Conservative government says its goal is to attract skilled workers and entrepreneurs to align with New Brunswick’s labor market needs while creating an environment in which newcomers can settle and succeed.

  3. Entrepreneurs

Increasing the immigration population in New Brunswick is crucial to the province’s success. “The attraction and retention of new Canadians are critical to helping us increase our province’s population and meet the needs of our employers,” Labour Minister Trevor Holder says.
