NB launches program to retain international students, build skilled labour in province


The Government of New Brunswick has officially launched the Study and Succeed in New Brunswick program. The new program will provide international students with critical resources for launching a career and life in NB, which will in turn increase the availability of skilled labour in the province. “Growing our population base is essential to addressing the workforce needs of the future, and access to skilled talent is crucial for New Brunswick companies of every size,” said Arlene Dunn, minister responsible for Opportunities NB. “Not only are international students a critical component of our talent pipeline, they also contribute immensely to making our province more diverse and inclusive.”
