  • Between 1890 and 1900 the population of the Maritimes grew from roughly 880 000 to 893 000. This means there was in increase of 13 000 people in the regional population.
  • During this decade 75 000 immigrants landed in either Saint John or Halifax, of which 17 000 elected to stay in the region.
  • Even with a natural population growth rate of 0 percent, the Maritime population should have grown by at least these 17 000 immigrants.
