Newfoundland & Labrador is inviting proposals to suggest how to improve its services for immigrants to the Atlantic Canadian province. This call is to better the settlement and integration services on The Rock under the NLPNP.
The emphasis will be on:
- Support for international graduates
- Community attachment
- Navigation of Canada immigration pathways
- International recruitment
The move for proposals is aimed at improving the quality of settlement services for those who arrive in Newfoundland & Labrador. The Report on the Settlement Outcomes Survey brought out key areas where immigration experience could be enhanced.
The report highlighted the need to:
- Recognize the foreign qualifications of immigrants, and
- Assist them in integrating themselves into the native communities
The respondents to the survey shared traits like:
- They were comfortable communicating in French and/or English
- They felt that their communities are safe and welcoming
- They know Canadian rights and laws quite well
The majority of the respondents felt that access to supports and services in Canada is easy. To summarize, respondents largely felt satisfied with their life and work in Canada.
Only 2/3rd of respondents agreed to know how to get language training. Just 59% responded that access to language training was easy. Significantly, the dissatisfaction with language training was expressed by those who have been living in Canada for over 10 years.
Those with children who felt that the available childcare was completely useful was only 62.5% of the respondents. 75% knew how to enroll their children in schools. 1 in 8respondents cited that transportation was a problem for their families.
The current proposals accepted are part of the 5-year action plan that was launched in March 2017. Organizations are given time till midnight of February 5, 2021 (Newfoundland Standard Time) to submit their proposals.
The proposals can serve any of:
- AIP endorsees
- Provincial nominees
- Canada PRs living in Newfoundland & Labrador
- International students and/or graduates
- TFWs in Newfoundland & Labrador trying to be PRs
- Canadian citizens born outside Canada
