Fewer Maritimers Attending College At Home

Fewer students from the Maritimes are choosing to stick around and study on the east coast.

That's according to a new report by the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission which says over the last ten years the number of Maritimers enrolled in the region's universities decreased by 12-percent while the number of Canadians from outside the Maritimes increased by 28-percent and the number of international students doubled.

Commission C-E-O Mireille Duguay says Maritime Universities are maintaining their numbers by attracting more students from outside the Maritimes.
