Situated in the southwest of New Brunswick with a population of around 60,000 we find its capital city, Fredericton. Well known for its substantial snowfall (yes, even within Canada!), kilometres of natural hiking paths, and the Saint John River that snakes through the city.

Three universities can be found in the city: St. Thomas University, University of New Brunswick, and Yorkville University. Academics aside, students can take a stroll to the Boyce Farmers Market, or check out the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, or for the summer months you can even take a swim on Killarney Lake Park Trail.

PROS

  • Young students tend to agree that finding a part-time job is relatively easy, whether as a waiter, shop attendant, or similar. Especially when compared to smaller cities in the region.

  • International students are entitled to Medicare on the condition that they can demonstrate to the government that they are a full-time student, and have lived in the region for three months, however it is very important to note that this service only covers necessities arising after moving to Canada, and does not provide care for pre-existing conditions.

  • On the social side of things, every year Fredericton hosts the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, and the city enjoys a lively nightlife scene which students can take advantage of in their free time.

CONS

  • If you are planning on getting a job, and getting involved as much as possible socially, then it’s going to be necessary to sharpen your French skills, which may be an additional hurdle for some.

  • The weather here in the winter can be dangerously cold, and failing to dress appropriately could be a lethal mistake. Pack your most serious coat for New Brunswick!

  • Many agree that it’s hard to blend in here as a newcomer, as it’s a small place and everyone knows each other, but even so the locals are known for their friendliness.
