NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM
Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s most eastern province. It is made up of two parts. Newfoundland, an island in the Atlantic Ocean and Labrador on mainland Canada. A large number of its residents live in the provincial capital of St. John’s, which enjoys a lively culture that draws heavily from its coastal environment. The province has recently evolved into a significant economic force in the Canadian landscape due to a boom in energy and natural resources.
