Speaking about the initiative, a Nova Scotia and Treasury Board President Scott Brison said that there is a collective responsibility to banish the term ‘come from away’ from our vocabulary.
John McCallum, the immigration minister, said that the immigration component shall be driven largely by the provincial governments and their specific requirements. He said that we shall be working with each government to have a specific plan for the province. The focus will be on engaging firms to recruit and retain immigrants.
Once immigrants arrive, it will be planned to have ways to help them stay there. This will help in accelerating their credentials for different employment opportunities.
Initially, its 2000 immigrants, but it could be 4,000 people, said McCallum. This will depend on how well the project does.
