Michael Roach President and CEO, CGI

New Brunswick has always been a leader in terms of setting up technology infrastructures and they’ve continued with that tradition. The turnover rates are normally at these centers much lower than at other global delivery centers in other parts of the world, especially in jurisdictions like India.

The ONB-organized Atlantic Roadshow involved minimal red tape and complications and resulted in increased sales of new products for us. We need more programs like it and feel it’s an intelligent way to bring real, tangible results to New Brunswick businesses. This was an excellent initiative.

Matt White Owner, Sussex Beard Oil Merchants

My experience with ONB has totally changed my idea of what it would be like to work with the public and non-profit sectors. You walk in thinking these folks will make it all happen for you, but you find out that no, YOU have to make it happen; it’s your idea. But they will provide essential networking, support, encouragement, and advice to help you along the way. ONB truly wanted me to be successful and have really supported me every step of the way.

Fred McMahon Vice-President, Fraser Institute of International Policy

New Brunswick shot to the top of the rankings as miners lauded the province for its fair, transparent, and efficient legal system and consistency in the enforcement and interpretation of existing environmental regulations. Combine that with a competitive taxation regime and minimal uncertainty around disputed land claims and New Brunswick has emerged as a superstar in the view of the global mining community (Fraser Institute’s Survey of Mining Companies: 2011/2012).

Leo Sousa President, Cormer Defense

New Brunswick has something that most other provinces don’t have: a very clear strategy of where they want to go and what they want to do with a major focus on Aerospace and Defence. Opportunities NB has and continues to work very hard to make things happen for not only Cormer but the entire Aerospace and Defence Sector, which is one of the reasons why Cormer chose to do business in New Brunswick.
