You will love New Brunswick
New Brunswickers enjoy an enviable quality of life. Our communities have been named among Canada’s “Best Places to live”, enjoying shorter commutes, less traffic, vibrant culture, and unbeatable recreational opportunities. You can be 10 minutes from work and 10 minutes from hiking, biking, the ocean or some of Canada’s mightiest rivers.
Whether just starting out in your career or raising a family, you will find New Brunswick offers a quality of life unlike other regions. Affordable real estate prices make New Brunswick a great option for home buyers; according to the Canadian Real Estate Association, the average housing price in New Brunswick is less than $200,000.
Here’s What the Tech Community Says about New Brunswick:
“Our location in Fredericton is one of IBM’s major innovation hubs in tackling cybersecurity challenges across the globe. We’re committed to developing essential ‘future economy’ IT and security technology skills and working with our new employees, clients and partners to build on this tremendous opportunity to grow jobs and stimulate growth in the province.” — Dino Trevisani, President, IBM Canada
“Once we started building a family, our priorities changed. We knew we were going to want to look for something with a better work-life balance. So when the opportunity presented itself, we jumped at it. Now New Brunswick is home. The reality is I didn’t have to give up the stuff I loved [in Vancouver]. I can still ski and golf at several great locations.” — Martyn Sibbald, Director of Customer Success, Introhive
“I would characterize the people here as being the friendliest of any place I have ever lived. The size and scale are just right. It is large enough that you have a lot do and don’t get bored, but small enough that you don’t worry about massive freeways and long commutes.” — Ryan Strynatka, Chief Adoption Officer, Salesforce Marketing Cloud
“What I love is that the company can move at a rapid pace day-to-day, but when work is done I can truly relax. You see trees here, not just concrete. It’s that quality of life that is our biggest advantage.” — Greg Noel, Co-Founder and COO, Quick Service Software
