Why immigration is desperately needed in Atlantic Canada – Marco Navarro-Genie, President & CEO, Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS), discusses why people aren’t staying in or moving to Atlantic Canada.

Perfect Atlantic Storm
Many Atlantic Canadians have to leave the region in order to find opportunities for themselves and their children. We’re in a perfect storm because the young are leaving, natural population growth is in reverse now – there are more people dying than being born, and, many of the immigrants that move to the region only stay a short time before leaving for larger urban centres.
