Immigration, Population Growth and Skills of Newfoundland and Labrador eliminated fees under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) as a response to the tremendous benefit newcomers bring to the province on April 13, 2022.
The province removed the $250 application fee for skilled workers and the $1,000 application fee for entrepreneurs. The Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism provides free services to newcomers and employers, assisting them in the preparation and submission of applications under the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) and the Provincial Nominee Program.
Honourable Gerry Byrne, Minister of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills stated:
“By eliminating immigration processing fees, we are again acknowledging the tremendous benefit newcomers bring to our province while making immigration more affordable. This is yet another reason to consider making a life in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
As a result of this initiative, the province will be able to achieve its ambitious goal of welcoming 5,100 newcomers annually by 2026, and positioning Newfoundland and Labrador as a national leader in immigration settlement and retention.
