how does weather and climate affect settlement patterns in New Brunswick?

my ideaS:

provinces with extreme climate such as Nunavut would obviously attract fewer immigrants since no one wants to live in such freezingly cold conditions but New Brunswick has a extremely mild climate due to the moderating effects of water so therotically it should attract immigrants yet studies show that settlements in New Brunswick are decreasing. why?

Part of the reason is a decline in agricultural land use. See this site.

Another reason is a decline in immigration to that province. See this site.

Another is a change in employment opportunities; more high tech jobs are moving people to cities not rural areas.
