The twin demographic challenges of an aging population and slow workforce growth will affect Canada's Atlantic provinces more acutely than other regions of the country. Many years of low birthrates and youth outmigration mean that the Atlantic region faces diminished workforce growth and a fiscal squeeze as fewer taxpayers support a growing bill for public programs. The scarcity of population attracting large urban centres in the region is a sobering fact for those hoping to address Atlantic Canada's demographic pressures through large inward flows of migrants.
