Ontario: Project Aimed To Entice Migrants To The North
21 Apr 2017
The Northern Policy Institute has launched a new pilot project aimed to bring people and workers to the North.The Northern Newcomer Strategy is planned in a way to develop an action plan in order to reform present policies and programs associated with the immigration.
The pilot project will focus on to examine the present demographics with the migrants in the Northern part of the Ontario province of Canada. It aims to determine how to increase the influx of the immigrants in the North and then to use the information gathered to form policy paper which will be geared at getting the government support.
The study conducted by the Northern Policy Institute showed that 75000 workers and 150000 people are required to avert labour force and populace shortage across Northern Ontario by 2041. In other words for next 25 years the province needs to attract 6,000 people every year to overcome the shortfall. The Northern Police Institute has said that in lieu to attain the target, it will require resources, effort and commitment.
“While municipalities are already developing their own ways to stop out migration, bring youth back to their communities or others, there needs to be a common immigration strategy for Northern Ontario.We need to add the immigration component if we're going to get the numbers we need to live and stay in Northern Ontario. The demand will be great with the baby boomers retiring in droves and business owners looking for people to buy their business, “said lead researcher, Don Curry.
