Youth Retention and Attraction in NL

Just before Christmas 2006 Community Linkages launched its first public appeal for the youth of our province. In June 2008 the provincial government announced it's intention to campaign the province for ideas on how to retain and attract youth in our province. Early supporters of Community Linkages where instrumental in forming the provinces new Youth Retention and Attraction Strategy.

The program by all indications seems to have been very thorough and comprehesive and we are beginning to see some reports of the results of the program.

Today the provincial government officially launched its Youth Retention and Attraction Strategy.

As a rural Newfoundland and Labrador supporter are you optimistic as to the success of this program? Does the strategy have potential for finally stemming the tides of youth outmigration in this province?
