New Job Match Program Launched by Newfoundland and Labrador

  • by

On 29 September 2021, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador began a program to match international job seekers with available positions. The online form, which can be found here, will be available until 13 October 2021. Called Pathways Job Matching, it asks candidates a series of questions to determine eligibility. This information is then used by the province’s immigration department staff to pair up candidates with employers according to the needs of the labour market.

The program is open to individuals with open work permits as well as international graduates and their spouses (if applicable). Candidates must be committed to working full-time and settling permanently in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Newfoundland and Labrador hopes to increase immigration and grow the number of permanent residents in the province in the near future. Currently, the plan is to have 5,100 new permanent residents annually by 2026.  For 2021, the allocation of provincial nominations from Immigration, Refugee, Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is 1,050 through the Newfoundland Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP), and 442 applications under the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP). The province has undertaken or will undertake numerous activities in support of this goal, such as increasing the number of immigration staff to assist newcomers and establishing a new online application system for immigrants interested in the province.
