Newfoundland & Labrador PNP: Performing Well and May Exceed 2022 Target -8th August, 2019

Newfoundland & Labrador PNP
It seems Canada’s youngest and eastern province will take in above 1,700 immigrants three years before than assumed.

In 2017 the Newfoundland and Labrador province government said they would greet 50% higher immigrants per year by year 2022 through Newfoundland & Labrador PNP. Their figures were on the 2015 rate of immigration when 1,122 permanent residencies were announced, indicating they would require to bring 600 more immigrants to the province to reach their target.

That comes to a number 1,700 said Bernard Davis, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, for Newfoundland and Labrador. We assume by the end of this financial year we should be exceeding our target quite substantially.

The number of appeals to Newfoundland and Labrador increased from 2018 to 2019. The rise in applications may be a consequence of the Province's 5-year strategy of immigration in association with the government of Canada's Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (A.I.P.P), as both of these initiatives were began in 2017.

Statistics Canada states that approximately 51% of Newfoundland and Labrador immigrants lived in the province from the years between 2011 to 2016.

The Province sees immigration to improve further its declining population, which presently stands at about 525,000 people. Without immigrants, this Canadian Province projects that its population of working-age would decrease by 10% by 2025.

In the initial quarter of 2019, immigration was the unique factor contributing to growth, as per the Statistics Canada. There were higher deaths than births and higher inter-provincial migration out of the Newfoundland and Labrador province.
