Join this pivotal new conversation in your region to help New Brunswick overcome its most pressing challenge: welcoming more people for a stronger future.

New Conversations sessions like this one will occur in 15 cities and towns for a province-wide constructive dialogue around immigration, the economy, and the vitality and sustainability of our communities. Led by two of the province’s most prominent economists – David Campbell and Richard Saillant – these sessions will present pertinent new economic and demographic research on your region to spark these important conversations.

Lower immigration levels are a big reason why our labour force is declining in New Brunswick while it grows in the rest of the country. With fewer young people and workers, our public services, economic prospects and the vitality of our communities are threatened. In many cases, our industries can’t find the talent they need to expand or sustain their operations; while in other cases, community organizations, public services, and even minor sports teams are shrinking or at risk of disappearing.

We are optimistic that these new conversations will spark new ideas and solutions needed to welcome more people to our communities for a stronger future.

Please join us, and share with anyone you know who may be interested in helping your region grow and prosper.
