Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program 2019

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador consists of two separate land masses namely the island of Newfoundland which is linked with the mainland of Labrador. The province’s most populous city being its capital city of St. John’s.

The Newfoundland and Labrador’s recent boom in its energy and natural resources sector has made a significant positive economic impact which has attracted a major inflow of the human resources from all parts of the world.

Migration is an important part for Newfoundland and Labrador’s economic, social, cultural and demographic progress. The province ranks the lowest in fertility rates in the whole of Canada and the highest in the median age. It is expected that Newfoundland and Labrador will experience a 10 per cent decline in its working-age population by 2025.

This will lead to only 35,000 or fewer people in its provincial workforce. In order to stabilize this scenario, the provincial Government of Newfoundland and Labrador along with its partners are taking a collective approach in the area of immigration to attract more foreign workers.
