The first paper in the Northern Attraction Series explored Northern Ontario’s need for newcomers (i.e. immigrants and secondary migrants). In particular, the development of a Northern Newcomer Strategy was proposed. In this second installment of the series, the author explores Northern Ontario’s strengths and weaknesses in attracting and retaining newcomers through discussions with key players including local immigration partnerships, settlement agencies and post-secondary institutions.
