KPMG’s 2014 Competitive Alternatives study once again confirmed New Brunswick as the lowest cost business location in Canada and the United States. The study revealed that labor costs in New Brunswick are 16 percent lower than the U.S. average and 15 percent lower than the G7 average, while European companies can potentially reach up to 20 percent savings on their total operating costs. New Brunswick’s cost advantage continues to provide foreign companies with opportunities for a stronger bottom line.
