MRSB Newcomers


MRSB Consulting Services is hosting a focus group on behalf of Central Development Corporation to discuss what PEI communities are currently doing or should be doing to make newcomers feel welcome and factors that influence a newcomer’s decision to stay in a community long-term.


Central Development Corporation is partnering with the Department of Rural and Regional Development, the Department of Workforce and Advanced Learning and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency to develop a Welcoming Communities Program with Designation to assist communities with taking steps to be more welcoming for newcomers.
