Canada’s Provinces have taken upon themselves to help infuse the country with talent that can do wonders. Originally started as a program to fast track the immigration process of skilled workers, the provincial nominee programs are augmenting and improving with each passing minute.
Being nominated by a province can turn out to be a game changer for a nominee. Certain provinces are in search of skilled workers for a particular occupation. By nominating a candidate from the Express Entry pools of candidates, provinces invite them to come and work and contribute towards the improvement of that particular province.
Newfoundland and Labrador are the easternmost provinces of Canada. This makes this place a hub for shipments and transportation. This multicultural province is inhabited by a huge amount of residents and provides many career opportunities. This province also contributes a lot towards the energy and natural resource sector.
To be nominated by such a province is rare and a dream comes true for many. Candidates who are eligible under this program are immigrated under the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP.) You can migrate as a: –
- Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry Skilled Worker
- Skilled Worker
- International Graduate
Enrollment into the Express Entry Program without any job confirmation can leave you with low chances of getting an approval. People enroll in job bank that can link them with a plausible employer. If this employer nominates them from a province, then the chances of getting an approval augment considerably. You will also receive the aid by officers of this province to fast track your immigration process.
