Newfoundland and Labrador doubles its PNP allocation for immigration
Six months after requesting an increase in its PNP allocation for immigration, Newfoundland and Labrador, an Atlantic Canadian province, has doubled its yearly immigration from 1,500 to 3,050 people.
According to the latest data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the province welcomed 3,495 new permanent residents in 2022, representing a 70.9% increase from the 2,045 new immigrants in the previous year. To date, the province welcomed 1,585 new permanent residents in 2023.
If immigration continued rising at that rate for the whole of 2023, Newfoundland and Labrador would welcome 9,510 new immigrants this year.
From the 1,120 new permanent residents that came to its shores in 2015, Newfoundland and Labrador has more than tripled its level of immigration as of its most current year’s numbers.
The province is finally having a population increase after years of demographic loss, which is mostly attributed to immigration.
The population of Newfoundland and Labrador hit 531,948 on the first day of this year, which is the highest level in more than twenty years, according to the province’s own figures.
Newfoundland and Labrador’s Immigration Future
Ottawa promptly raised some provinces’ immigration allocations in response, conforming to Canada’s proactive immigration policy. Newfoundland and Labrador is a significant player in Canada’s goal to welcome 465,000 new permanent residents this year as part of the 2023–2025 Immigration Levels Plan.
Over 500,000 new permanent residents are anticipated to move to Canada by 2025, bringing the total number of immigrants over the following three years to 1.45 million. This innovative strategy shows Canada’s dedication to building a diverse society, with Newfoundland and Labrador leading the way in this innovative endeavor.
