Located in Atlantic Canada, Newfoundland & Labrador is the easternmost American province. Every morning, the province gets a little sunlight, while the remaining part of the continent stays in the dark. With this gentle warmth, the economy of the province goes a step ahead each day.
This maritime province has introduced The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador, a five-year immigration plan aimed to invite more new immigrants to the community. As a result, thousands of skilled foreign workers have arrived in the province, and they are contributing to the development of the economy. In current times, the province ranks at third on the list of highest GDP in the country. Services industries play a primary role in driving the growth of the economy, with the largest share in GDP. Moreover, mining, manufacturing, oil production, and fishing are a few other industries with significant shares.
Framework of the Newfoundland & Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP)
Through the NLPNP, the province targets skilled workers who meet their eligibility criteria to the IRCC. Every year, the province nominates more than a thousand prospective candidates for permanent residency. To start with the process, interested candidates can apply through the Newfoundland & Labrador government website. The province offers numerous in-demand occupations, including skilled cooks and butchers, long-haul truck drivers, and many others.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP)
The AIPP offers an immigration pathway to skilled foreign workers who are willing to settle permanently in Atlantic Canada. Candidates must have a valid job offer in occupations classified under National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill level or type 0, A, B, and C. Moreover, if the candidate meets other eligibility criteria, then he or she can apply for permanent residency along with the application for a work permit.
