Economic Immigration Lab - Application

We are pleased that you are interested in participating in the second round of the Economic Immigration Lab (EIL). Applications are for teams of 4-6 members and each team member should submit an application.

*Note: Team members can use the same responses for the problem-related questions.

We are specifically looking for potential solutions to the following problem statements:

  1. HOW MIGHT WE HELP NEWCOMERS TO FIND MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT AND TO FEEL PART OF THE NB COMMUNITY?

  2. HOW MIGHT WE HELP EMPLOYERS FIND TALENT TO GROW THEIR BUSINESSES?

We would like to know more about you, your team, the immigration challenge you are addressing, and how you will take this forward after EIL.

By the end of the EIL you will:

  • Develop cross sector relationships

  • Make connections with the right people to create change

  • Prototype potential solutions

  • Contribute to create the change that is critical to NB’s future prosperity

  • Gain professional development experience in an innovative lab approach

After the EIL, NouLAB will be a continued resource for prototypes that move forward.
