Newcomers, immigrants and those who have been in the Port city for a while congregating at a job fair at the Marco Polo cruise ship terminal.

It was put on by the provincial government and the last in series of job fairs all over the province.

Haytham Gendi is an oil and gas professional originally from Egypt.

He tells us Egypt has a different culture, style and business environment.

He says his home country is a little bit procratic when it comes to opening and running a business but he says in Canada it's the other way around with people trying to help you and find what will work better for you.

Gendi is on an exploratory tour of New Brunswick and at the end he will meet with an immigration officer.

He says his wife and kids are excited about the possibility of living in Canada even his 13 year old son.
