Provincial Government Announces Designated Suppliers List for International Entrepreneur and International Graduate Entrepreneur Net Worth Verification

Following a Request for Qualifications issued in October 2018, the Provincial Government today announced the designated suppliers list for verification of financial net worth and source of funds for business immigration stream applicants under the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program.

The following suppliers are designated for a period of one year, subject to renewal on an annual basis at the Provincial Government’s sole discretion:

  • Deloitte LLP
  • Grant Thornton LLP
  • BDO Canada LLP
  • MNP LLP

Since 2017, the number of individuals supported toward permanent residency by the Provincial Government has increased by over 25 per cent. Preliminary data for 2018 indicates 1,530 individuals became permanent residents in Newfoundland and Labrador, representing a 20 per cent increase in the number of permanent residents over 2017.

“Immigration is a crucial part of our government’s efforts to foster social, cultural and economic growth throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. These designated suppliers will help verify the finances of business stream applicants and protect the integrity of the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program.”
Honourable Bernard Davis
Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour
