PROV­INCE TAR­GETS POP­U­LA­TION GROWTH, KEEP­ING IM­MI­GRANTS

Regina Leader-Post - - POLITICS -

The gov­ern­ment of Prince Ed­ward Is­land is com­mit­ting to new ini­tia­tives in an ef­fort to get im­mi­grants to stay in Canada’s small­est prov­ince and boost the pop­u­la­tion. The com­mit­ment is in­cluded in today’s speech from the throne, open­ing the fall ses­sion of the Is­land leg­is­la­ture. The speech, which out­lines the gov­ern­ment’s in­ten­tions over the next year, in­cludes prom­ises of a new broad­band In­ter­net sys­tem from one end of the prov­ince to the other, a car­bon mit­i­ga­tion strat­egy and a re­port on poverty re­duc­tion.
