IMMIGRATION TO ATLANTIC CANADA: WHAT ARE THE TRENDS?

Since January 2015, over 56,000 immigrants settled in Atlantic Canada. Based on the data from Open Government, there is a constant trend of increased levels of immigration to four Atlantic Provinces. Nova Scotia accepted about 22,765 newcomers (almost 41% of total) in the last 4.5 years. 18,275 settled in New Brunswick (33%). Another 9,130 chose Prince Edward Island as their new home (16%) and 5,835 immigrated to Newfoundland and Labrador (10%). Except 2017, when there were fewer newcomers than in 2016, every next year more newcomers settle in the Atlantic:

  • 2015 – 8,295 newcomers
  • 2016 – 13,665 newcomers
  • 2017 – 11,685 newcomers 
  • 2018 – 14,240 newcomers
  • 2019 – 8,120 newcomers

Based on the figures for January-June 2019, we can expect the final level of the year will surpass the figures for 2018.
