visas default image New Brunswick - the key Atlantic province of Canada is planning to enhance the immigration level in the province in next five years. As per the government immigration will play a key role in combating the socioeconomic concerns elevated due to ageing population and population decrease in the province of New Brunswick.

Population Growth Strategy of the New Brunswick Government

The government of New Brunswick has introduced a new population growth strategy which aims to raise the number of economic immigrants coming to the province each year to 7,500 by the end of year 2024. This is double the number of immigrants setting in the NB presently and close to one percent of the total population of the province. The government considers population rise critical for the success and development of the province in future, which will largely depend on the magnetising and retaining the new Canadians. It is also crucial for meeting the needs of the industries and employers in the province.

New Brunswick to create massive number of jobs- Needs workers to fill opportunities

Report claims that New Brunswick's present working-age population is not big enough (in fact very small) to fill upcoming opportunities and its falling birth rate suggests that this condition will only get worse if immigration is not improved.

The decrease in working age population also have its underlying drawbacks, as the tax base shrinks, while the government's would require increased number of funds to support the socio economic needs of its non-working population. Hence, encouraging people to live, work and settle in the province of New Brunswick is absolutely vital in the years to come.
