Canada is looking to immigration as a key solution to its disappearing workforce. According to Stats Canada, 16.9% of Canada’s population and 19.4% of N.L.’s population was 65 and older in 2016. In January 2017, the four Atlantic Provinces and the federal government jointly announced the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. The Pilot will operate for three years, giving the Atlantic region the opportunity to attract and retain up to 2,000 additional immigrants. In their article, The Atlantic Immigration Pilot: 5 Key Opportunities & Risks for N.L. Employers, as published in the St. John’s Board of Trade Business News’ Spring 2018 issue (at page 23), McInnes Cooper Immigration Lawyers Meghan Felt and David Nurse identify five of the key opportunities and risks of the Pilot for N.L. employers.
