Focussing On Immigration To Address N&L’s Aging & Declining Population

The Canadian province of Newfoundland & Labrador is due for its provincial elections today. Interestingly, all political campaigns leading up to the provincial election saw parties promising to prioritize immigration. 


According to various news reports, the Liberal Party in the province has been promising to triple the number of present newcomer levels in the next five years. The Progressive Conservatives are catching up with the promise to focus on high immigration targets if voted to power. 


Over these years, the lack of quality job opportunities in Newfoundland & Labrador played a significant role in immigrants favoring provinces like Ontario & British Columbia. Yet the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is looking to boost its immigration efforts through Atlantic Immigration Pilot Programs & other business-class programs. The province may also work on a long-term retention plan by sensitizing local communities towards the immigration of foreign workers.

How To Immigrate To Newfoundland & Labrador?


Newfoundland & Labrador (NL) are looking to attract and retain new immigrants to address its aging and declining population. There are two main options for any foreigner to work & settle in Newfoundland & Labrador


One option is to qualify under the NLPNP along the lines of the following five categories: 


  • Express Entry Skilled Worker Category: nominates skilled workers registered in the federal Express Entry pool. Nominated individuals need to have job offers in the province.
  • Skilled Worker Category: targets individuals who have received a job offer from an employer or those who are already working in the province. 
  • International Graduate Category: recent graduates with a valid Post-Graduate Work Permit and having a job or a job offer in the province may apply. 
  • International Entrepreneur Category: Foreign entrepreneurs who wish to settle in the province and start/purchase a business. 
  • International Graduate Entrepreneur Category: International Graduates willing to start or run a business in the province may apply for Canada PR under this category. 


The other option is to qualify under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program. The employers in Canada’s Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island) may hire foreign workers without the need to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
