The current dynamics of population change in Prince Edward Island was the subject of a Public Symposium held at UPEI on Thursday, January 21, 2016.

Population change has always been at the core of the development of small islands – and it is no different on Prince Edward Island. Every day the public media deliver news about some aspect of population: youth outmigration, rural depopulation, an aging workforce, temporary foreign workers, refugees, wealthy immigrant investors….

This Public Symposium provided an opportunity for the public to hear about and contribute to the debate on several of the salient population issues that are crucial to the future of Prince Edward Island.

Featured speakers were Dr. Jim Randall, Katie Mazer (PhD Candidate), and Tony Wallbank.

This event was sponsored by UPEI’s Institute of Island Studies in conjunction with UPEI Research Services.
