Foreign-owned companies or subsidiaries based in the province are an excellent opportunity for new foreign direct investments; and are a part of Opportunities NB’s mandate. Opportunities NB considers all investments from outside New Brunswick as foreign direct investment (FDI). Any company with ownership of more than 51% from outside the province is considered an FDI and part of Opportunities NB’s mandate. Working with in-province companies and FDIs helps build a diverse and stable economy.
Opportunities NB offers companies both provincial and regional information. Each region has inherent features that naturally attract the interest of certain companies and influence their final decision. Generally, key elements considered include availability or labour, workforce skills, transportation infrastructure and land and real estate costs. The decision about where a company will base its operation is made by the company, not by Opportunities NB.
