Keynote with Minister of Labour, Skills and Immigration, Jill Balser
With a population of over one million people, Nova Scotia is growing quickly. The goal? To reach two million people by 2060.
The Province of Nova Scotia wants to be strategic in this growth to build on the momentum we’ve been experiencing since 2015 provincewide, particularly here in Halifax. Leading the effort is Minister of Labour, Skills and Immigration, Jill Balser.
On June 23, please join us for a lunch and learn to learn more about how the Province is working to grow the population, attract the skilled workers we need most, address labour shortages, and make sure people feel welcome and stay. Reaching the goal of two million will take a team effort, come find out how your business can benefit and be part of the team.
