International entrepreneurs who wish to operate a business in Newfoundland and Labrador will have four more opportunities to submit an Expression of Interest in 2019.
Candidates must meet certain eligibility criteria in order to be considered for the International Entrepreneur category. Among others, prospective immigrants must create, co-manage, or purchase a business in the province and demonstrate their intent to reside permanently in Newfoundland and Labrador. They must also be an active part of the company’s daily operations.
An Expression of Interest is not an application but is rather a way to notify the province of one’s interest in immigrating to the province. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador said its International Graduate Entrepreneur category also remains open to international graduates of Memorial University and College of the North Atlantic who wish to create or co-own and manage a business in the province.
The Expression of Interest process for those interested in immigrating to Newfoundland and Labrador via the International Entrepreneur category will open on the following dates:
- September 13 to 20, 2019;
- October 11 to 18, 2019;
- November 8 to 15, 2019;
- December 6 to 13, 2019.
Other programs offered by the province include the Newfoundland and Labrador Express Entry Skilled Worker and the Newfoundland and Labrador International Graduate Category.
