Government of New Brunswick

Immigration can benefit New Brunswick employers, helping them to retain existing employees and to attract and hire new foreign talent. Our workforce attraction team works with employers to provide assistance with navigating the different immigration programs, streams, and processes that might be available to them.

Immigration support for current employees

If you currently employ an international student, a temporary foreign worker (TFW), or other work-permit holder, it may be possible for you to support eligible employees transition toward Canadian permanent residence through one of New Brunswick’s provincial immigration programs.

Immigration support for talent recruitment and workforce expansion

If you have potential candidates who would require immigration support, we can help you to determine what options might be available to you.

If you have a labour shortage and need to attract skilled talent, it may be possible to participate in international recruitment efforts in co-operation with New Brunswick and with Canadian embassies around the world.
