Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada is known as the Maritime province of the country. Two years ago, it had released a new immigration strategy to help the province bring in the needed immigrants. Now, two years after, Newfoundland and Labrador has been able to get quite a good amount of applications from individuals who are willing to be immigrants in the province and in Canada. In fact, the province’s local immigration officials have mentioned that they have become overwhelmed with the huge amount of applications that have come in.
The immigration strategy that the province has put together and has launched two years ago is aimed at bringing in a certain number of immigrants and it would be running up until 2022. However, it does seem like with the tons of applicants sending in their interest and getting approved, the province would be able to reach their target and even go over that amount by this year despite the immigration program’s target to be three years from now.
Back in 2017
The local government of Newfoundland and Labrador has launched an immigration program in 2017. During that time, they had been positive that they would be able to bring in 50% more individuals each year until 2022. This was based on the immigration rate back in 2015 and during that time, the province was able to give out 1,122 permanent residency visas. With the given target, the Canada province was going to focus on bringing in an additional 600 immigrants so that they can hit their goal.
Bernard Davis works as the Minister of Advanced Education, Skills, and Labor of the Canada province and on this, he said that when the whole program was put into action, the local government has believed that the target of bringing in 1,700 total immigrants per year was actually quite a huge goal. They thought it was going to be hard to reach but they were willing to work hard to be able to achieve it. now, Davis is happy that they have received good results with their immigration program. In fact, he mentioned that they believe that they would be able to go over their target.
Immigrants coming in
According to the data from Newfoundland and Labrador, the number of people sending in their applications to be immigrants in this Canada maritime province has doubled from the time the program was put in place – 2018 to 2019. They believe that it was all thanks to the immigration program that was working alongside the Canada government’s Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (which is also known as the AIPP). Davis said that the results are showing that they are now starting to reap all of the fruits of all the work that they have done.
