New Brunswick is a province that has been experiencing a remarkable transformation over the past few years, with many changes taking place that are reshaping the landscape of this vibrant region.

One of the most notable developments is the surge in population that has taken place here, with more and more people flocking to the province to make it their home. NB-IRDT has been closely tracking this trend, and their latest report is nothing short of fascinating.

According to updated findings, since July 2020, New Brunswick's population has seen an incredible growth, with 44,140 people making the province their new home.

The movement of citizens to and from New Brunswick and the overall population dynamic continues to be the focus of these reports. However, in our most recent report update, the scope has widened to consider:

  • Movement within the borders of New Brunswick
  • Whether individuals arriving to NB are new or returning residents
  • Which areas of New Brunswick are experiencing the most growth

Releasing new updates to this report is important as it provides decision makers with up-to-date and accurate information on New Brunswick's population trends, which can inform policies and strategies to support the province's economic and social development.
