Immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador

Immigration to Newfoundland and LabradorNewfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP)

One of the many ways to immigrate to Canada is to participate in the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program.

Applicants who have failed to score enough points required for immigration to Canada under a federal program can try to relocate to the country under one of 11 Provincial Nominee Programs which offer a lot of attractive options to a wide range of professionals. Provincial programs are also pathways for those who wish to immigrate to a specific province or territory.

One of such programs is effective in Newfoundland and Labrador and is called “Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program” (NLPNP). It includes several streams.

  • Express Entry Skilled Worker (for skilled workers who have a job offer in Newfoundland and Labrador. Candidates are selected through the Express Entry system)
  • Skilled Worker (for those having a job offer from an employer in Newfoundland and Labrador and for those who already work in the province with a valid work permit)
  • International Graduate (for recent graduates who have obtained a work permit, found a job or received a job offer in Newfoundland and Labrador)

By choosing one of these streams you can get a provincial nomination followed by permanent residence in Canada and — after three years of permanent residence — become a citizen of the country.

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is the easternmost of the Atlantic provinces of Canada. It occupies the island of Newfoundland and a part of the Labrador peninsula. Although the province has poor industry conditions, it is rich in natural resources. A fifth of its population lives in the capital city of St. John’s. This is one of the oldest cities in North America: it was founded in the XVI century.
