Up until 2001 known only as Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador was an independent country until 1949, when it joined the Canadian confederation. The province consists primarily of insular Newfoundland and mainland Labrador and although the latter is much larger, almost half the population resides in Newfoundland’s capital of St. John’s. The province faces the Atlantic Ocean and is the most easterly province of Canada.
The Newfoundland & Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) accepts applications under the following immigration streams:
- Express Entry Skilled Worker
