Provincial Government Announces Four Rounds of Expressions of Interest for International Entrepreneurs

The Provincial Government will open four rounds of Expressions of Interest for prospective immigrants around the world who wish to settle in the province and be engaged in the daily operation of a business they create, join, or take over.

The International Entrepreneur category under the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program was a key commitment in The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador, one of several initiatives making it easier for more newcomers to establish businesses and create jobs in the province.

The Expression of Interest process for individuals interested in being considered for 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; and,
  • December 6 to 13, 2019.

More information, including eligibility guidelines, is available here.

In addition, the 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. Expressions of Interest for individuals interested in being considered for this category may be submitted at any time. More information on this category, including eligibility criteria, is available here.
