Government of New Brunswick

There are many reasons to move to New Brunswick. Some people choose to live here to be close to family, or for an affordable lifestyle; others because of our basic, universal, government-funded health care and our excellent education system. Still, others choose New Brunswick to be minutes away from oceans, lakes rivers, and trails as well as lively urban centres and smaller friendly communities.

New Brunswick has one of the lowest rates of COVID-19 cases in the country. Most businesses and organizations have safely reopened by adopting additional measures to protect the health of their employees and customers, and by taking creative new approaches to providing services. Our economy has reopened and will continue to rebound as we move through the recovery phase. New Brunswickers are dedicated to supporting those who have been impacted financially and emotionally by the pandemic; financial assistance, food programs and mental health resources are available to help families recover.

According to the New Brunswick Labour Market Outlook Report for 2018-2027, approximately half of all job openings in the next 10 years will be the in the following sectors:

  • Healthcare and social assistance
  • Retail and wholesale trade
  • Manufacturing

The healthcare and social assistance sector is expected to see a high level of growth, as our population grows older and the demand for healthcare services continues to increase.
