Applications for immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador up by 25% over 2017

Applications for immigration to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador have increased by 25 per cent this year compared to the first 10 months of 2017, the province’s government says.

Last year saw Canada’s easternmost Atlantic province welcome 832 people through both its Provincial Nominee Program and the federal/provincial Atlantic Immigration Pilot.

The province’s Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, Al Hawkins, attributed the 25 per cent increase in applications this year to the province’s five-year immigration action plan, which aims to increase the number of newcomers to Newfoundland and Labrador to 1,700 annually by 2022
