Report/Rapport : Demographic Pressures and Policy Options in Atlantic Canada, November 2009

Source: C.D. Howe Institute.
"The twin demographic challenges of an aging population and slow workforce growth will affect Canada’s Atlantic provinces more acutely than other regions of the country"."A further factor that has tended to foster Atlantic Canada outmigration is the region’s urban/rural split."

"Historically, the significance of this urban-rural split lies not in any tendency for outmigration from rural regions but in relatively low in-migration to more rural regions. While the future may hold surprises on this front as well, our working assumption is that the greater economic opportunities and attractions of a larger community in urban centres will continue to work
against net migration to rural areas.
