Project Description

New Brunswick has sought to attract immigrants as part of a broader strategy aimed at increasing the province's working-age population. The provincial government has also invested significant resources in ensuring refugees choose to remain here.

An important determinant of the success of this strategy is that refugees generate economic activity greater than the economic costs of hosting them, one such main cost being the provision of health care.

This project uses administrative data to study immigrant and refugee outcomes that are of great interest to the Province of New Brunswick: particularly retention and health service use.
