Come From Away (1 x 30)


Many rural communities throughout the Maritimes are in trouble. Their local economies are struggling and young people and families are moving west to find work. But where some see despair and decay, others see unbridled opportunity. These optimists arrive from all over the world and with a variety of backgrounds but they all share one thing in common - the desire to restore and revitalize struggling communities. 

Come From Away is a half hour documentary that travels to Little Sands, Prince Edward Island, Guysborough, Nova Scotia, and Inverness, Cape Breton to explore how three groups of new arrivals have brought the passion, experience, and resources needed to help these Maritime towns reinvent themselves and create new opportunities for economic growth.
