New Brunswick

New Brunswick has the Cosmetology Association of New Brunswick (CANB) as the regulatory body for cosmetology and beauty services. The CANB requires that aspiring cosmetologists should apply to the executive director and must be approved to be registered members of the association.

Students’ training must also be done at any licensed school with licensed instructors. Not only that, the association also highlights that they don’t accept online training for beauty services listed on their website, which they consider under cosmetology.
