Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program

Newfoundland and Labrador have a rich history due to being located right and the edge of Canada on the Atlantic Ocean, where you can site whales as well and ice bergs floating by, as they travel down from the Arctic. The land saw Vikings settle there long before anywhere else in North America. The area is rich with culture, having produced a musical east coast sound by combining Celtic and Canadian flavours together. Many immigrants have made their home in Newfoundland and Labrador to enjoy a heritage wrapped up in the culture of the people and the sea, fishing, boating, the incredible shorelines, the elements and all that fresh air!

The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program accepts applications from qualified Skilled Workers or International Graduates, who, along with their immediate family

You have the option of first applying through the Federal government and if you score at least 67 points out of 100 on the PNP point assessment grid, you may be entered into the Express Entry pool. If the NLPNP finds your profile in the IRCC’s pool, and after assessing whether or not you meet the requirements of the program, based on the contributions you can make to the workforce and community, decides that you are a suitable candidate for settling in the province, and may invite you to apply to one of the province’s immigration programs. If you are found to be a suitable candidate to settle in the province, you may be nominated by the NLPNP to have your application added to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada Entry pool for a chance to be selected for permanent residence status in Newfoundland and Labrador.
