February 17, 2022, FREDERICTON (GNB) – Deloitte is expanding its technology operations into New Brunswick. The growth of the company’s Canadian delivery centre is expected to create about 200 full-time positions in New Brunswick’s technology and consulting sector over the next five years.
“The Government of New Brunswick, through Opportunities NB, is pleased to see Deloitte’s continued growth and expansion into the province,” said Arlene Dunn, minister responsible for Opportunities NB. “This expansion aligns with Opportunities NB’s dedication to improving our technology sector and enables more digital transformation service capabilities in our region.”
The delivery centre is a team of functional and technical experts that serves clients nationally and internationally. It provides technology, cybersecurity and HR transformation services, including cloud technology, data management and custom development. Currently based in Montreal, the centre’s expansion to New Brunswick will include hiring at all levels, from new graduates to experienced industry professionals based in Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John.
“We are proud to welcome Deloitte’s expansion in New Brunswick,” said Sheri Penner, Deloitte’s managing partner, Atlantic. “The addition of this technical delivery centre will create unique opportunities for both our people and our region, and we are pleased to partner with our many stakeholders across Canada and within New Brunswick to make this successful.”
To support the creation of these jobs, Deloitte is eligible for a payroll rebate of up to $1.9 million from Opportunities NB over five years. This investment is estimated to have a direct GDP impact of $52.4 million for the province.
“We are thrilled to work with Deloitte and celebrate their commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion for their hires,” said Dunn. “This expansion represents a significant investment by Deloitte into New Brunswick and is a testament to both the strength of New Brunswick’s economy, as well as the talent and innovation within our technology sector.”
Deloitte will be working with Opportunities NB to attract newcomers to the province, bringing a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to its workplaces and clients, as well as providing valuable jobs to the province and its newcomers. The company is also working with a variety of post-secondary education institutions on hiring new and recent graduates to help retain the province’s top talent.
