The Saint John region is a community in transition. Our economy is moving from one based in labour to one based in knowledge.
More than at any point in our history, our success is tied to global supply chains, investment flows and people migration.
We have the assets to make the pitch to businesses and people to consider our region their new home, including a rich history of business, development, and entrepreneurship. Along with our deep-water port — one of the oldest in North America – we’re also home to some of Canada’s most innovative tech companies. Our economy is a diverse mix of multinational powerhouses, start-ups and local businesses working in all fields.
The lifestyle here is off the charts. Beautiful and diverse, real estate at a fraction of the price of other communities. A funky, historic city centre brimming with culture and heritage architecture on the edge of the world-famous Bay of Fundy. Vibrant, dynamic communities along the Kennebecasis and Saint John – Woolastook Rivers. Nature in abundance, along with outdoor activities in the woods and on the water. And our location on the eastern seaboard puts us in the perfect time zone for doing business globally, with New England our close neighbour to the south.
And then there’s COVID-19. The pandemic has changed everything. New Brunswick, which has responsibly navigated the pandemic is now uniquely positioned to attract jobs, businesses and people as the shift to remote work and digital transformation continues.
