Retaining Newcomers in NL

Notes & Ideas

  • Seasonal jobs are not considered for PR (rural areas)
  • More firms like ANC for providing awareness among newcomers for jobs in NL
  • People are friendly but not friends wiht newcomers

Questions

  • How can we stop people from moving to other provinces?
  • How can we help people in landing a future permanent job?
  • How can we make immigrants comfortable with Newfoundlanders? (and vice versa)
  • How do we create awareness among businesses regarding wage subsidy so that they can hire more immigrants?

Actions

  • Orientation of newcomers to the community
  • Provincial government of NFLD needs to be more diverse (in job postings)
  • Get together of localities with immigrants.

Take Away

Networking support to immigrants to land a job in NFLD & settle here
