Nova Scotia Looking to Attract Immigrants
The number of immigrants arriving in Nova Scotia has slowly declined over the last five years. In 2011, 2,138 immigrants landed in the province, that’s down from 2,408 in 2010 and 2,424 in 2009. However, government officials remain confident that they can attract 5,000 newcomers a year by 2015.
Five years ago, people who landed in Nova Scotia were more interested to leave for Toronto or Vancouver instead of staying in the province, but recent statistics show that two-thirds of people arriving in Nova Scotia are staying in the province.
Minister Jason Kenney believes that Nova Scotia’s economic prospects is moving in the right directions which will help attract people to the province and want to make them stay there.
