Top 10 Most In-Demand Jobs in New Brunswick

By cvf, 05/22/2024


Record-breaking immigration and solid economic growth in New Brunswick last year left the Atlantic Canadian province in good financial shape, poised for even further job growth particularly in the public sector this year.

“We still expect upward job market momentum to continue given the province’s job skew towards public services, in which sectors still have relatively high job vacancy rates,” forecasts TD Economics.

Employment in New Brunswick is expected to grow by 1.7 per cent this year.

Through Canada’s two-tier immigration system, foreign nationals can gain their permanent residency through the federal Express Entry system’s Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program, Federal Skilled Trades (FST) program and Canadian Experience Class (CEC), as well as the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) of the 10 Canadian provinces.

Landing a job in Canada can be a big help for foreign nationals hoping to immigrate here under the country’s economic immigration programs.

Applicants under the Express Entry system must first complete a profile and these are ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to determine which applicants in the Express Entry pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence.

The CRS is a points-based system that gives a score to candidates based on the information in their profiles, including points for having a valid job offer.

Here are the Top 10 Most In-Demand Jobs in New Brunswick:

1. Registered Nurses (NOC 31301)

New Brunswick is, like all the provinces, facing a shortage of nurses as evidenced by the 175 job ads for nurses in that province on Indeed.ca, a job-hunting website, in early May.

Despite universities graduating nurses every year, this labour shortage is actually getting worse across the country.

“For registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses, over the period 2022-2031, new job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 155,400 , while 143,700 new job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill them,” reports Job Bank, a job-hunting and career-planning website operated by the federal government.

These are the medical professionals who provide direct nursing care to patients, deliver health education programs and provide consultative services regarding issues relevant to the practice of nursing.

This occupation comes with a median annual wage of $78,000 in New Brunswick based on a 37.5-hour work week, according to Job Bank data.
