This paper explains that immigration to Atlantic Canada is important because Canadian immigrants stimulate economic activity through a strong work ethic based on previous experience and, in most cases, university training. The author points out that Canadian immigrants are mostly entrepreneurs of considerable wealth who are willing to invest in the Canadian economy and start their own business. The paper states that Atlantic Canada has a dominant white, poor population owing to a lack of immigration, which is usually non-white. The author stresses that the major stumbling block for immigration to Atlantic Canada is the lack of economic opportunity. The paper concludes that, especially for Atlantic Canada, immigration laws need to focus on making immigration swift and simple and on long-term settlement once immigration has occurred.

From the Paper:

"Atlantic Canada has so little immigration to Canada that the region was not even mentioned once in the body of Statistic Canada's 2004 immigration report. However, a glance over the report's appendix highlights the real inadequacy of Atlantic Canada's immigration problem: for example, only 2.1 percent of Halifax's population constituted "new arrival" status, compared to Toronto's 17.3 percent figure. The lack of immigration to Atlantic Canada is notable upon observation of population levels of Canada's more popular cities. For example, the populations of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have defied national trends and even decreased over the last five years."
