Greater Moncton Immigration Strategy 2019-2024

Sustaining economic growth

The Greater Moncton region (including the cities of Moncton and Dieppe along with the Town of Riverview) has been an economic growth engine for New Brunswick. Just last year, the economy added 3,500 net new jobs with growth in manufacturing, health care, business services and the transportation sector.

One of the main reasons why Greater Moncton has been among the fastest growing economies east of Montreal for more than 20 years has been its ability to attract people from across New Brunswick, Canada and around the world.

Sustaining economic growth

The Greater Moncton region (including the cities of Moncton and Dieppe along with the Town of Riverview) has been an economic growth engine for New Brunswick. Just last year, the economy added 3,500 net new jobs with growth in manufacturing, health care, business services and the transportation sector.

One of the main reasons why Greater Moncton has been among the fastest growing economies east of Montreal for more than 20 years has been its ability to attract people from across New Brunswick, Canada and around the world.

As we look to the future, immigration will play an even more important role helping to sustain our economic growth and provide the tax revenue government needs to offer high quality public services and ensure our communities are great places to live, build careers, raise families and, eventually, retire.

Role of immigration

For decades, almost all of Greater Moncton region’s population growth came from natural growth (far more births than deaths) and through the attraction of people from elsewhere in New Brunswick.

In recent years, the community has started to attract more people from around the world to sustain the population and ensure our important industries have the workers they need to sustain and grow their operations in our community.

The #immigrationGM2024 Strategy

The cities of Moncton and Dieppe, the Town of Riverview and the Greater Moncton Local Immigration Partnership have engaged a consulting team to help develop a new immigration strategy for the 2019 to 2024 timeframe. This consulting team is made up of three New Brunswick firms: Jupia Consultants Inc., Diversis Inc., and Viminio Recherche et Analyse Inc.

Over the next few months, the consulting team will be interviewing business and community leaders, ethno-cultural associations, educational institutions and other organizations involved in the attraction and retention of immigrants in our community. A number of theme-based consultations will be hosted, and presentations offered to community groups across the region.
