the International Graduate Category
The NLPNP International Graduate Category is for international students who have graduated from a recognized post-secondary educational institution in Canada, to be considered for nomination for permanent residence in Canada.
Graduates interested in applying under this category must do so within two years of the date of their graduation.
The NLPNP Skilled Worker category exists to nominate individuals who have specialized skills that are deemed as having a critical impact on the operations of an employer in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Applying to the NLPNP is a simple process. First, potential applicants must determine which of the four categories they belong to Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Family Connections or Immigrant Entrepreneur. Following this, the potential applicant will download and complete all required provincial and federal forms for their category and gather the required supporting documentation (eg. Birth Certificates, Diplomas, Passports etc). Once this is completed the candidate will send in all forms and documentation to the Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism. Below is a brief overview of the four categories.
