Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP)

Newfoundland and Labrador is a province in Eastern Canada. It has 2 distinct landmasses – Labrador and Newfoundland. Labrador is connected to the mainland while Newfoundland is an island. The provincial capital of St. John’s has a large number of residents. It enjoys a lively culture in its coastal environment.

After the boom in the province’s energy sector, it has become a significant economic force in the Canadian economy.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP), which is the province’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), allows the province to nominate skilled applicants who meet the nomination criteria, for Permanent Resident (PR) status. The NLPNP offers nomination for the following categories:

  • Express Entry Skilled Worker
  • Skilled Worker
  • International Graduate

The program offers an efficient immigration process along with assistance from Provincial Immigration’s Program Development Officers who not only explain the program requirements to applicants but also guide them through the application process. This makes it a great PNP for qualified and skilled workers and international graduates who wish to settle permanently in Newfoundland and Labrador with their families. The province may nominate up to 1,050 individuals annually through NLPNP.

Let us give you more information about these categories:

Express Entry Skilled Worker

This category allows the provincial government to nominate skilled candidates with a job offer for permanent resident status through the Federal Government’s Express Entry program. Prospective immigrants who have been accepted into the federal Express Entry pool may be able to apply to the NL Express Entry Skilled Worker category.

Please note that in order to be eligible for the Express Entry Skilled Worker Category, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants are required to have been accepted into IRCC’s Express Entry pool.
  • Applicants will be required to provide their Express Entry Profile Number to prove their registration in the Express Entry pool.
  • They will also need to obtain a 4-digit job seeker validation code from IRCC.

  • Individuals who do not meet all the criteria given above are not eligible for the Express Entry Skilled Worker category under NLPNP. However, they may be eligible to apply under the NLPNP Skilled Worker category or the NLPNP International Graduate category.

In addition, Express Entry Skilled Worker applicants must:
