Enterprise Saint John knows how to make valuable connections between our technology, people and strategic location to drive ideas, investments and Industry opportunities.

Our vision is to become Canada’s Most Connected Community leveraging our technology, our people and strategic location to create jobs, expand our workforce and attract new business to the Saint John region.  We intend to:

  • Promote our IT infrastructure, skilled workforce & strategic location with multi-modal connections to global markets.
  • Help companies innovate, grow & attract and retain talent
  • Use our Smart & Connected Community Data project to help businesses harness the power of data & be competitive
  • Develop entrepreneurs, problem-solvers and innovators.

Research shows the majority of a region’s economic growth comes from within (80%), while the rest (20%) is from external growth. With that in mind, we focus most of our resources on developing aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups through programs like Emerging Entrepreneurs, Navigator and the Impact loan programs. We help businesses grow through the Catalyst Innovation Program which uses the Simplexity Process to help companies solve business problems from workforce attraction & retention, strategic planning to product development and marketing.

We are building on our history of innovation and collaboration to connection companies, innovators and industry to create jobs, expand our workforce and attract more investment to the Saint John Region.
