People Help You in New Brunswick
We’re not a multi-million person hub so we have better access to each other here. While in other parts of the country application forms and online processes are the interface for immigrants with our country, In New Brunswick, employers and foreign workers talk to real people in our provincial and federal agencies to help make the move to our country.
That makes a big difference and often speeds the process for people eager to join our new country and build a new life in our Think City.
Visit Before You Move
But before you decide to move here, maybe you’d like to visit first? Depending on the country you are currently a citizen of, you might need a visa to get into the country. Find out if your country is one of them. It’s also easy to find out how to apply for a visa and what is involved. We’d love to have you visit and our Think City Ambassadors would be happy to let you into their world while you’re here so you can find out if our Think City should be your city.
You may even be able to work while you visit by obtaining a work permit.
