A Northern and Rural Appeal to Newcomers

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Late last year, the Canadian government pledged to welcome one million immigrants over the next three years. However, if trends continue, only a small number of them will choose to live in rural or northern Ontario. Meanwhile, these areas, with aging populations and large gaps in their labour forces, are desperate for newcomers. The Agenda discusses how to attract newcomers to settle outside Ontario's urban centres.
