Government of New Brunswick

Thank you for your input, the consultation period is now closed.

In the November 2012 Speech from the Throne, the Government of New Brunswick committed to enhancing the province’s population growth efforts and developing a strategy focused on attracting more Francophone immigrants to New Brunswick.

As a result, the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour is encouraging stakeholders and New Brunswickers to provide feedback on its upcoming five-year population growth strategy.

To gather feedback, the department’s Population Growth Division is launching a discussion paper that touches on several areas, including:

  • Immigration & Settlement;
  • Diversity and Welcoming Communities;
  • Repatriation & Attraction;
  • Outmigration; and
  • Training & Developing the New Brunswick-based workforce.



Share Your Input

All New Brunswickers are welcome to submit comments on the population growth strategy. To do so, please download or open the discussion paper and respond to the series of questions within it. All comments may be submitted until November 1st.

Consultations will be held with key stakeholders throughout the month of October.
