A series of virtual Canada jobs fairs in Newfoundland and Labrador will help employers recruit more foreign workers to resolve on-going labour shortages.
“Newfoundland and Labrador employers with an interest in filling their staffing needs with workers from outside of Canada are encouraged to register for upcoming virtual immigration fairs starting in September,” notes Newfoundland and Labrador’s Department of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills.
“These free virtual fairs will be held between Sept. 20, 2023 and March 27, 2024, starting with the East and South East Asia and Oceania regions.”
In the first seven months of this year, , the Rock, as the province is affectionately called, saw an immigration boom of 109.5 per cent compared to the same period last year, with 3,540 new permanent residents for that period.
That makes it the province with the fastest rate of immigration growth in the first seven months of this year compared to the same period in 2022.

The biggest difference for immigration on the Rock has been its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) which saw growth of 351.6 per cent in its number of new permanent residents in the first seven months of this year, or 1,850 more newcomers to the province during that period than for the comparable one last year.
And the Atlantic Canadian province is bullish on boosting that level of immigration even higher than it already is.
