Saint John Growth Committee Hears Draft Population Growth Framework

The issue of getting more people to come to and then stay in Saint John is the mandate of the Population Growth Manager.

David Dobblestyn presented his Draft Population Growth Framework to the Growth Committee earlier this week.

Dobblestyn says there really needs to be a focus on newcomers by having a more streamlined information process for them, a newcomer's guide to Saint John.

He also says there should be a presence from the city at business and trade fairs, especially the ones held in larger centres such as Toronto and Montreal in hopes of attracting workers here.
