Newfoundland and Labrador youth tell province to focus on affordable education, diversified and sustainable economic development

by CPRN / RCRPP

Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN) unveiled its policy recommendations to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador as a further step toward the development of a province-initiated, Youth Retention and Attraction Strategy announced by Premier Danny Williams in June 2008.  The Strategy is intended to counter the negative impacts of youth net out-migration, strengthen the labour market and support the economic development of the province.

Policy Actions Report:  Making Newfoundland and Labrador a Province of Choice for Young People is based on findings from a series of deliberative dialogues with young people from the province; the dialogues were designed and conducted by CPRN, under the direction of the Newfoundland Department of Human Resources, Labour and Employment (HRLE), which is responsible for the development of the strategy.
