Priority Resolution

WHEREAS the Nova Scotia population is dwindling, and, as the Ivany Report indicates, one pathway to progress is through immigration;

WHEREAS there is a federal cap on the numbers permitted for immigration to Nova Scotia;

BE IT RESOLVED that the federal government remove the cap, encourage immigration to Nova Scotia and the Maritimes, especially in rural areas, and use temporary foreign workers as a pathway to permanent citizenship in order to help sustain the region and stimulate growth.
