Improving Newcomer Retention
Following a series of collective impact sessions, consultations, and focus groups, a strategy for improved newcomer integration and retention was released. Recommendations found within the strategy were refined through consultations, a survey, and several sessions with a newcomer advisory group.
While remaining in PEI is an individual’s decision, just as it is for any PEI resident, there is still much work to do to increase the likelihood of improved newcomer retention in PEI.
Similar work completed through a previous pilot project did lead to improved retention within a target population, meaning improved retention is possible. Establishing strategy, setting focus, and taking action on identified priorities, can have and has had the desired outcome – improved integration and retention. Improved retention is a significant contributor to population growth.
