NOVA SCOTIA NEEDS TO WELCOME THE WORLD TO OUR SHORES. IN ORDER TO ADDRESS OUR POPULATION CHALLENGES, WE NEED MUCH HIGHER IMMIGRATION LEVELS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF ENTREPRENEURS IN OUR PROVINCE AND TO RENEW OUR LABOUR FORCE.

And that means attracting more people from other provinces and countries. Interprovincial migration—for example, attracting recent immigrants or native Nova Scotians here from other provinces—is another method of boosting our population.
