Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program

Newfoundland is currently turning into a thriving economy owing to its energy and natural resources. To provide support for this growing economy, the province is looking for qualified professionals and post-graduates who can contribute towards its increasing prosperity.


The easternmost province of Canada – Newfoundland and Labrador PNP is made up of two distinct landmasses. Newfoundland is an island but the landmass of Labrador is connected to the mainland while. This province’s economy is based on natural resources, energy and tourism. To boost economic, social, and cultural growth, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is increasing efforts to attract and retain immigrants.

To provide immigrants with the opportunity to become a part of this eastern province’s growing workforce, the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) has promoted several immigration pathways.
