The Barriers We Face: Newcomers and the Financial Markets

The Financial and Consumer Services Commission of New Brunswick (FCNB) is co-hosting a public dialogue with Cohesia (formerly Dialogue NB) entitled “The Barriers We Face: Newcomers and the Financial Markets”.

Join us on May 31, 2023, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., to hear from newcomers and industry experts as they share their knowledge and experiences of immigrating to and working with newcomers in New Brunswick.

When immigrants arrive in Canada, they face many financial challenges. From opening a bank account to using a credit card, from buying a house to paying for insurance, the nuances of Canadian markets can be difficult to navigate. Newcomers rely on industry professionals to assist them in the many stages of financial decision-making. The ability of industry professionals to understand and respond to newcomers’ challenges is critical to reducing barriers, building confidence in the financial and consumer markets, and developing a sense of belonging.

The public dialogue, The Barriers We Face: Newcomers and the Financial Markets, will provide institutions, organizations and industry professionals with an objective view of the challenges immigrants face when navigating New Brunswick’s financial and consumer services.

The dialogue will be delivered with simultaneous translation in English and French.
