FutureReadyNB: Helping employers shape the future of work in New Brunswick


Are you a New Brunswick employer looking to expand your workforce or hire university talent? FutureReadyNB can help!

FutureReadyNB was created in response to a provincial task force report that called for expanded experiential learning capacity and work opportunities for New Brunswick university students. The initiative is a partnership between New Brunswick employers, public universities, students and the government, and provides funding and coordination support for students to pursue off-campus work and learning experiences. The goal is to support employers in filling labour gaps while providing students with New Brunswick-based job experiences before they graduate. Ultimately, FutureReadyNB is intended to support economic growth, and help with employment recruitment and retention of educated New Brunswickers.
