New Brunswick Needs Immigrants, Increasing Population
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.
- French Speaking immigrants
- Skilled Workers
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.
Job Openings in New Brunswick for Foreign Nationals
From 2018 to 2027, New Brunswick is forecast to have about 120,000 job openings, and approximately 13,000 of those will require workers from outside the province because not all of the jobs can be filled by local labor. Immigrants will be crucial to fill these jobs in New Brunswick.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
