Newfoundland - PNP Program

Newfoundland - Canada PNP Visa Agents

Beginning January 2, 2021 at noon, Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador will accept applications (NST). This is a new immigration option for highly educated, highly skilled newcomers with specialised experience in fields such as technology and ocean sciences, where local training and recruitment have fallen short of need.

Employers have requested greater help to satisfy a growing need for highly educated, highly trained individuals, prompting the creation of this new path for newcomers. Hundreds of enquiries have been received by the Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism since the introduction of Priority Skills on November 18th.

Newcomers who have completed a Masters or Doctorate degree at Memorial University within the last three years, as well as others who are exceptionally qualified and have worked in a specialised, highly skilled, high-demand occupation for at least one year, will be eligible for Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador. The list of in-demand jobs will be updated.

In other provinces, pathways comparable to Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador account for up to 70% of all accepted immigration petitions.

You’re on the correct track if your occupation is in-demand (eligible) in New Brunswick and you want to live and work in Canada under the NBPNP. Getting a job and starting a new life in New Brunswick might be a dream come true. You only need to take the first step.
