Three pathways to apply for the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program.

  • Express Entry
  • Skilled Worker
  • International Graduate


For prospective immigrants and those interested in transitioning to permanent residency:
The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program is an economic immigration program designed to assist skilled immigrants and their families to come and live and work in Newfoundland and Labrador. Applicants must meet certain criteria such as having a job or job offer, the ability to economically establish and the intent to reside in the province, in order to be nominated for permanent residency. This program provides applicants with a dedicated immigration officer who will remain available to explain the program requirements and processes until nominees receive their permanent residence status.

For employers with labour market challenges:
The Job Vacancy Assessment focuses on assisting employers who are experiencing local, individualized labour market challenges. Labour Market Development Officers are available to engage and support employers in finding solutions to their workforce needs. A conversation with a Labour Market Development Officer can identify which provincial immigration pathway is the most appropriate solution for the employer’s human resource needs.

To begin the Job Vacancy Assessment process and create an online account, please contact your regional employment centre to speak with a Labour Market Development Officer. A list of employment centres can be found here.
