Crest of New Brunswick New Brunswick

In a time of global economic uncertainty, the Government of New Brunswick has acted to minimize the impact on the province and its people.

The government will protect jobs, support businesses, and encourage young people to stay in or return to New Brunswick. They will help New Brunswick businesses with good financial histories and solid business plans to get access to the capital they need to grow, create jobs, and strengthen the economy.

In addition, the government has allocated funding to create another 500 community college seats and further investments in apprenticeship training and support.

New Brunswick is investing in the trades. As a responsible tradesperson, you invest in New Brunswick when you report your employment, business, or subcontractor income. Just say "No thanks" to cash jobs.
