Immigration Numbers in Saint John

Saint John is doing better at attracting and retaining immigrants to the city but more has to be done.

That word delivered at the launch of an effort to bring newcomers and employers together and make workplaces in the city more diverse.
Luisa Montoya, project co-ordinator at the multi-cultural resource centre in the City Market, tells CHSJ News the biggest obstacle to immigrants not staying in the city is not being able to land a job.

Montoya also tells us Saint John welcomed more than 2 thousand immigrant families last year which is a big improvement over just three years earlier.
