Study of the socio-economic impacts of a mobile workforce on the Burin Peninsula


What happens in the local labour market as a result of a mobile workforce? What are the impacts of workforce mobility on the local communities? When workers go away and make high wages (in Alberta, for example) what happens to the local labour market, wages, affordability, standard of living, family life? How does this impact the local service industry? What lessons and solutions are there?
