Immigration pathways stimulate population growth in Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador have a declining birth rate and shortage of people to fill job vacancies all over the province. According to the province’s Minister of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills, Gerry Byrne’s statement in the House of Assembly, the province needs to respond to serious demographic challenges by increasing the level of immigration into the province. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador aims to reach the goal of receiving 5,100 newcomers a year by 2026, encouraging skilled and talented individuals to move to the province.
