The New Brunswick Model

This Maritime province shares many traits with its western neighbor, Maine. Both
places are defined by their forests and rugged coastlines. Both value
independence and self-reliance. And in both places, the vast majority of
residents are white and aging. As the baby boom generation begins to retire,
officials and business leaders in both New Brunswick and Maine have fretted over
where the next wave of workers, homeowners and taxpayers will come from. Unlike
Maine, New Brunswick is taking strong action. New Brunswick has developed a
multipart strategy to grow its population, and it appears to be working.
