The outcomes of Newfoundland and Labrador’s initial PNP draw have been made public. 663 immigrants, including nurses, software professionals, and data analysts, were welcomed by the Atlantic province. Additionally, Newfoundland and Labrador have released the results of the first three draws for the Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador stream.
So far this year, the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) has invited 663 people to apply for a provincial nomination. Essential Skills A new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) for highly educated, highly skilled immigrants with specialized knowledge in fields where interest has surpassed local training and recruiting, such as technology and ocean sciences, is available in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The effort was created to help with the labor shortages in the area. To qualify, newcomers must possess at least a year of professional experience in a profession that is in high demand in Newfoundland. Post-graduates who just received a Masters or Doctorate from Memorial University can also use it.
The operation of the Priority Skills program
A mechanism of Expressions of Interest is used by Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador (EOI). The province invites interested candidates to apply online after submitting an EOI. Those who are invited receive a provincial nomination if they meet all Express Entry or Skilled Worker requirements. This nomination will serve as evidence for a later application for permanent residence in Canada to the federal government.
A questionnaire is filled out by applicants to calculate their EOI score. Local companies with profiles with the Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism in the province will be able to see those who get more than 60 points. You don’t need a job offer to apply for the province’s new Provincial Nominee Program. However, candidates must have garnered interest from nearby businesses and received a high rating in the EOI system.
Applicants should have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of at least five in order to be eligible. The results of the language test must also be recent—less than a year. They must also possess a permanent residence in Newfoundland and Labrador and be at least 21 years old.
