Nova Scotia sees increase in number of immigrants due to native's welcoming attitude

September 2016, 16

Lena Diab, Minister of Immigration, Nova Scotia said, the welcoming outlook of the residents towards the immigrants is leaving a positive impression over the immigrant families at the province. 

As per a latest update from the government, the number of foreign nationals who came and settled in the province during the first half of 2016 was more than the numbers reported during entire 2015. 

During 2015, approximately 3403 people made Nova Scotia their home, breaking all the previous records of immigration. The record set in 2015 was broken within first half of 2016 only. Nearly 3418 newcomers have entered the province during the period of 1st January - 30th June 2016.

Nearly one third of these 3418 immigrants are Syrian refugees who started coming to the province, December 2015 onwards. 
The immigration minister feels that way natives of Nova Scotia are welcoming the foreign nationals seems to be a defining moment for the county.

"They are welcoming people like they never welcomed them before. The support that we have received across this land and across this province from one region to the next has been overwhelming. I don't believe anybody would have expected that kind of support. People are embracing diversity; people are loving the fact that we're all different."

The minister expects that change in attitude will convince more immigrant families to remain in the province. Almost a decade ago less than one-third of the immigrants use to remain back in the province. The latest report suggests that Nova Scotia is now able to retain more than three-fourth of the people who come to the county.
