Project Number: P0032
Year Approved: 2018

Project Description

Of the Canadian provinces, New Brunswick has been identified as having the lowest rate of immigrant retention. The study identifies some of the factors influencing retention rates in the province including immigrants whose intended province for landing is New Brunswick, but who do not actually arrive. This project examines which stream of immigrants have a higher probability of remaining in the province, what characteristics the majority of leavers possess and if these characteristics can be regarded as causal and if the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program has higher retention figures compared to other immigration programs.
