Minister says new Canadians will help address labour shortages

“Immigration is going to, I think, I predict, continue to grow in importance in Atlantic Canada, including in Newfoundland, because of the skill shortages, because of the aging of the population,” Kenney said.
“We don’t really have much choice but to try to address that partly through immigration. Obviously immigration is not ‘the solution’ to the aging population and the shrinking labour force, it is only a solution and we need to do a much better job of getting Canadians into the workforce.”
