Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry
Are you considering applying for the Canada Express Entry program but are unsure which province in Canada would be the greatest fit for you?
Well, Newfoundland and Labrador is an excellent place to relocate to in Canada. It has a broad labour market, well-educated and skilled people, and a family-friendly atmosphere.
So, how to immigrate to Newfoundland and Labrador province via Express Entry?
The Express Entry Skilled Worker Category of the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program allows skilled foreign workers to enter the province faster than ever before. This program is for those who want to work and live in the Newfoundland and Labrador region permanently. It allows skilled immigrants and their families and overseas students to apply for permanent residency.
Newfoundland and Labrador is allowed to give out 550 Express Entry nominations each year to those who have been authorized by the federal government’s Express Entry pool.
Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry program eligibility
Applicants must meet the following requirements in order to be considered for the program:
|REQUIREMENTS||STEPS TO BE FULFILLED|
|Applicants must be approved into the Express Entry pool of (IRCC) Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.||Applicants must first create an Express Entry profile in order to do so. To be considered for the 1200 points Express Entry pool, candidates must score at least 67 points out of 100 on the skilled worker points grid.|
|Applicants should acquire a 2 year full-time job offer in Newfoundland and Labrador and intend to reside permanently in this province.||Candidates should get an offer letter from a company located in Newfoundland and Labrador province. Applications with offer letters that have a Provincial Government nomination or are selected by Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be fast-tracked under Express Entry immigration. In addition, the employment offer should be categorised as NOC Level 0, A, or B.|
|Applicants are also required to demonstrate their French/English language proficiency.||It can be done by acquiring 7 or higher NCLC/CLB scores.|
|For the Education requirement, a post-secondary degree or diploma from a Canadian institution or equivalent is necessary.||If the degree or diploma was not achieved from a Canadian institution or college, the application should be accompanied by an ECA report authorised by the IRCC. An ECA assessment indicates that their overseas degree/diploma is equal to the one offered in Canada.|
|A valid work permit is necessary to obtain.||You must have an IRCC Work Permit with at least 4 months left on it at the time of application.|
|Before applying for a visa, applicants must show that they have at least one year of work experience obtained within the past ten years.||The experience should be obtained under either NOC Level 0, A or B category.|
|Although applicants are no longer needed to submit proof of their settlement fund as of July 2017, it is still a good idea to keep track of your settlement money before applying because you will be requested to provide verification of your financial records along with your application.||Chequing accounts, savings accounts, Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GIC), Mutual Funds, Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP), Tax-free Savings Account (TFSA), term deposits, and time deposits are all eligible financial documents.|
How to apply for the Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry?
If you wish to apply for this program, you must first submit an application under the Express Entry program. Once it is accepted in the pool, you will be eligible to apply for the Newfoundland and Labrador PNP program. After that, you will receive a nomination if your application is approved in the Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry stream.
Each Express Entry candidate is provided with a point total based on their abilities, education, job experience, and language proficiency. In addition, applicants who have received a Nomination Certificate get to earn an additional 600 points.
Are you planning to bring family members along?
The applicant’s family members, such as his or her spouse, common-law partner, and dependent children, are welcome to accompany him or her. However, all dependent family members must be listed on the first application, and they cannot be added later. If an applicant has dependent family members who will not be joining them in Canada, they must offer a thorough explanation and suitable supporting paperwork.
