Under the Occupational/Skilled worker category of the Provincial Nominee Program, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador nominates international people with special skills, which the province thinks would help its economy to immigrate and establish themselves. These are basically the skills that are lacked in the local Canadian citizens.
In order to be able to immigrate to the Canadian province, foreign nationals have to fulfill a number of criteria, which are set by the provincial nominee program. Let’s have a look at some of the eligibility criteria that the PNP of Newfoundland and Labrador expects every Occupational/Skilled Worker category applicant to meet:
- Applicants must score minimum 50mpoint in self-assessment. The self assessment is based on a number of factors, like occupation; work experience; education; age; adjustability; language proficiency; arranged employment; financials resources and spousal employment.
- Applicants must have a guaranteed, permanent, regular employment offer from an employer, who is based in Newfoundland and Labrador. Else, the applicants must have been working in the province, boasting a work permit for a minimum period of 6 months.
- The employment offers offered to the applicants must be the ones that utilize specialized skills, which are usually not found in local Canadians.
