Immigrating to Newfoundland and Labrador
The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) can provide an alternate and quicker entry into Canada. It allows Newfoundland and Labrador to nominate applicants who qualify under provincially established criteria for Permanent Resident Status.

Applying to the NLPNP is a simple process. The introduction of the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program Express Entry Skilled Worker Category enables skilled immigrant workers to enter the province faster than ever before. Express Entry offers the opportunity for permanent residency and provides a path to success for skilled immigrants and their families, as well as international students.  Under Express Entry immigration, candidates will be fast-tracked once they receive an offer of employment from a Canadian employer, and have a Provincial Government nomination or are selected by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Below is a brief overview of the categories.


The Express Entry Skilled Worker Category is a path to immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador whereby skilled individuals who have been accepted into IRCC’s Express Entry pool; who have a job offer in Newfoundland and Labrador; and, who have the intent to reside permanently in this province can be nominated. Applicants may apply to the Express Entry Skilled Worker Category if they reside outside of Canada and have been offered a job by a Newfoundland and Labrador employer. Score a minimum of 67 points out of 100 on the PNP point assessment grid.


The NLPNP Skilled Worker category exists to nominate individuals who have specialized skills that are deemed as having a critical impact on the operations of an employer in Newfoundland and Labrador.


The NLPNP International Graduate Category is for international students who have graduated from a recognized post-secondary educational institution in Canada, to be considered for nomination for permanent residence in Canada.
