As Labour Markets Tighten, Will Outmigration Trends Reverse in Atlantic Canada?

May 23, 2008

Outmigration is a key contributor to the decline in Atlantic Canada’s population. On a net basis, Atlantic Canada lost 72,500 people over the last decade due to outmigration, reducing the region’s population by more than 2%. Outmigration rates are particularly high for young people: over the ten year time span, the Atlantic region lost about 10% of its population in the 15 to 34 age bracket. A discussion of outmigration trends and their implications are discussed in this APEC Commentary.
