The Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador is a new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) for highly educated, highly skilled newcomers with specialized experience in areas where demand has outpaced local training and recruitment, such as technology and ocean sciences occupations.

The program was created to help address local labour shortages. To be eligible, newcomers need at least one year of work experience in one of Newfoundland’s in-demand occupations. It is also open to post-graduates who completed a Masters or Doctorate degree at Memorial University within the past three years.
