Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP)

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.

The NLPNP offers: 

  • a quicker immigration process for qualified skilled workers, family members, international graduates and entrepreneurs who wish to settle permanently in Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • assistance from provincial program officers who are available to explain the program requirements and processes.

Successful applicants will receive a Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will speed-up the Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa application process.

Under the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), you may qualify under one of the following categories:

  • Skilled Worker
  • International Graduate
  • Immigrant Entrepreneur

To qualify for the Skilled Worker category, the applicant must have a Newfoundland and Labrador job offer that:

  • Is full time and permanent;
  • Utilizes specialized skills that could not otherwise be obtainable in Canada; and
  • Is consistent with provincial employment and wage standards.
Skilled Worker applicants may also be required to visit Newfoundland and Labrador for a pre-employment interview with the employer and the Department of Innovation, Trade and Rural Development.

To qualify for the Immigrant Entrepreneur Category, the applicant must establish or purchase a business that is within the province’s Strategic Sector list, including knowledge-based industries, manufacturing, natural resources, agriculture and agrifoods, health care, tourism, fishing, and cultural industries, although employment in other industries may also be valid.  In addition, the applicant must score at least 50 points on a Self-Assessment (proposed business, work experience, business experience, education, adaptability, age, language ability, financial resources).  Applicants must also:

VISITOR VISA: Hello Ramesh, I applied for my mother's visit Visa online on my own. However, due to some shortcomings in my application it got rejected without possibility of a follow up. I got disappointed as it is going to be my mother's first ever visit in 25 years to my home and I could not get the visa approved. Having left with no ideas, I contacted you. You took time to explain me with the requirements and procedures to obtain the visa. You also helped me with all required documents in right format and advised me on other necessary attachments to be submitted with my application. It proved so invaluable for me as the visa got approved right away, and that too for 10 years multiple entry. I strongly recommend any one your services and Advenure Immigration for all their immigration and visa needs.
