9th express entry draw 2018

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.
