Record-breaking year for immigration in NL

This year has been a record year for immigration in this province.

This year marks the first time the Provincial Government completely used up spaces in both the Provincial Nominee Program and the Atlantic Immigration Program, with more than 132 applications being deferred to next year.

In 2022, the Federal Government issued 1,593 spaces for the Provincial Government to nominate newcomers for permanent residency.

Now, the provincial government is calling on the Federal Government to double immigration spaces for Newfoundland and Labrador to 3,050 total spaces.

Statistics Canada is reporting that Newfoundland and Labrador is experiencing the fastest population growth in 50 years.
