The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) is currently divided into five streams: Express Entry Skilled Worker, Skilled Worker, International Graduate, International Entrepreneur, and International Graduate Entrepreneur.
All applicants are assessed on their intention and ability to settle permanently in the province, as well as their financial ability to successfully establish themselves and any dependents.
When applying, applicants are required to submit the required forms and documents for the provincial nominee program along with the federal forms required for their permanent residence application. If a provincial nomination application is approved through the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program, a letter of nomination will be issued, and the federal forms will be returned so the nominee can proceed to submit their permanent residence application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
Express Entry Skilled Workers are applicants who have been accepted into IRCC’s Express Entry system and have been offered a job by an employer in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Eligible candidates must:
Skilled Workers are applicants who have either a guaranteed job offer from an employer in the province, or who are currently employed in the province on a valid work permit.
International Graduates are applicants who have graduated from a recognized post-secondary institution in Canada, hold a valid post-graduate work permit, and have a full-time job offer from an employer in the province in a field related to their studies.
