New Brunswick targets former residents to fill jobs

Fredericton

— New Brunswick has launched a Web site to encourage skilled former residents to return, as well as connect current citizens with employers. The site, www.nbjobs.ca, includes job postings, cost-of-living comparisons and information on health services, education and recreation. The province is a leader in job creation and needs skilled workers to continue growth, said Premier Bernard Lord.
