New Brunswick’s Perfect Demographic Storm

Constantine E. Passaris, University of New Brunswick

Excerpt: New Brunswick is headed for the eye of the perfect demographic storm. Our multifaceted demographic challenges must be confronted in a purposeful and proactive manner. We need a strategic demographic plan that will reverse the downward trend in natural increase and enhance New Brunswick’s share of international immigration. Population growth is the foundation stone upon which New Brunswick’s economic development will be achieved. Our action plan must embrace a strategy for sustainable demographic growth in order to eliminate the current demographic deficit.
