How to tap into the financial and human resources of local workers who commute long distances to work


The lifestyles of migrant workers are changing. People used to leave for low-paying jobs, but now people are leaving for work in Alberta and making a lot more money. There may be an opportunity for these families, who are now better off, to invest money in tourism. Most younger workers move their permanent home to St. John’s, while older migrant workers are often situated in their traditional rural communities. These older workers often have money and time off that could be spent on the tourism industry.
