Saint Andrews – Join us at Growing Together: Scaling up while Increasing Retention.

The conference, on Thursday, October 24 at the Algonquin Resort, will unpack the opportunities and obstacles to growing our population by up to 10 per cent over the next 10 years through immigration, while simultaneously increasing the retention rates of newcomers to the province.

The conference will include keynote speakers, themed panels and discussions, and action planning. Conference attendees will hear from multiple experts on how our healthcare, housing, education, and employment systems will be impacted by welcoming up to 75,000 people over the coming decade, and what we can do to prepare and better support newcomers arriving in our province.

If you are working in healthcare, education, employment supports, or housing we want you at the table. As always, the conference will involve settlement professionals working with newcomers, various provincial and federal policy makers, public service providers, academics, community organizations and municipal representatives. The task of growing New Brunswick’s population by 10 per cent over the coming 10 years will require a collective effort.
