The population numbers are only slightly impacted by migration to more developed countries such as USA, Canada and UK. In the early years, places of migration included Trinidad, Venezuela, Aruba and Panama when there was the Oil boom. With migration, persons leave Grenada to live in other countries for a better life including pursuit of jobs, or higher education. In turn, they send remittance home to their family and relatives. Remittances contribute to the Gross domestic Product (GDP) of Grenada.
