Newfoundland and Labrador is planning to offer more settlement services to newcomers. According to the Immigration, Population Growth and Skills Minister, Gerry Byrne, “last year, settlement and integration projects provided free legal information, career and entrepreneurship training, increased rural integration, and many more benefits for newcomers.” The provincial Immigration Minister also mentioned the close work with partner organizations, which provide better support across the province and called for proposals to improve the labour market in the province. Newfoundland and Labrador also will recognize immigrants’ foreign credentials to help them easily integrate into the province.
