The Provincial Government held a series of roundtable discussions across the province to help inform priorities and commitments regarding actions to enhance immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador. Today’s release, Planning for the Future: Consultations to Help Develop a New Provincial Immigration Action Plan , outlines the feedback gathered through this engagement process.
The Provincial Government is committed to supporting immigration to the province. Through the consultations held between August 12 and October 5, 2016, stakeholders were asked to provide input on the role of government, employers, communities and individual residents in supporting immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador. In-person roundtables were held in St. John’s, Grand Falls-Windsor, Corner Brook, Happy Valley-Goose Bay and St. Anthony. Virtual sessions were also held for stakeholders who could not participate in-person. Over 100 individuals, including stakeholders representing 47 groups (30 organizations and 17 businesses) attended the roundtable sessions. The department also received 11 written submissions from individuals and organizations.
Input from the roundtable discussions and written submissions reflected in this document will be considered in the development of The Way Forward on Immigration. This Plan will provide the specific approach to increasing immigration to our province and welcoming 1,700 immigrants by 2022, as outlined in The Way Forward.
