In May 2019, the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick (TIANB) unveiled the New Brunswick Tourism Workforce Development Plan for the period 2019 to 2024. In recent years, the tourism industry has faced increased difficulties recruiting staff. The job vacancy rate rose sharply between 2016 and 2019 and there was serious concern the shortage could ultimately impact the tourism industry’s ability to grow in the future.

Updated in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic: New Brunswick Workforce Development Plan.

Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick [TIANB] partnered with Magnet to provide more business growth knowledge and tools to our employer partners. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing constant shifts in the business landscape. As a result, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are facing challenges to adapt, all while continuing to hire and train new talent and grow their operations. 

Magnet uses its intelligent matching technology to bring talent and relevant business growth information directly to you, saving your business time and effort. The Magnet experience is unique thanks to customization. When you create your free account, the details you provide (location, industry, markets served, etc.) helps us match you with grants, wage subsidies, relief programs, policy updates, networking and learning opportunities, and hiring initiatives that are directly relevant to you. Magnet’s partnerships with Export Development Canada, Business Development Bank of Canada, Labour Market Information Council (LMIC) and the Future Skills Centre helps us bring you content from a range of trusted sources on one platform. Finally, Magnet’s recruiting tools empower businesses to target job opportunities to candidates based on skills, experience, education, certifications, and diversity requirements. Only job seekers who meet your requirements will be invited to apply.
