New Brunswick Multicultural Council

With support from the ALLIES National Mentoring Initiative (funded by TD Bank Group), the New Brunswick Multicultural Council (NBMC) will develop a mentoring program for skilled immigrants which will be delivered in at least four locations across the province. NBMC has received funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada for the program development phase. In 2008 the New Brunswick government released a new growth strategy with the goal of increasing population by 100,000 by 2026. This growth strategy has four areas of focus which include increasing and targeting immigration and increasing settlement and promoting multiculturalism. The sectors with the strongest employment growth in New Brunswick include accommodation and food services, construction, finance, insurance, real estate and leasing.
