UNB has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2019

A record number of applicants were received, with UNB being one of five Canadian universities recognized and the only Atlantic Canadian university.

Some of the reasons UNB was selected as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers (2019) include:

  • UNB starts the majority of its new employees with three weeks of paid vacation (faculty receive additional time) and offers additional paid time off over the Christmas holiday season -- employees can also apply for an unpaid leave of absence
  • Working at one of North America's first public universities, UNB employees receive full tuition subsidies for courses related and indirectly related to their current position
  • UNB helps employees plan securely for the future with contributions to a defined benefit pension plan and retirement planning assistance -- retirees can also stay connected through a dedicated Retired Employees Association, which assists members with health benefits and related concerns, and provides a collective voice to the university
