January 12, 2021
College of the North Atlantic and Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus will receive an investment of $700K from the provincial government over two years in support of immigration. $600K has been provided to CNA through the NL Workforce Innovation Centre to establish an Economic Immigration Ideas Lab. This lab will bring leaders together to work toward a common goal of developing new approaches to increasing immigration. NL is also investing over $100K to support newcomers in completing required English language testing by supporting MUN in becoming a designated Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program testing site. “This new testing site will give us agency to strengthen international growth in our region and throughout the province, and will uphold our goal to sustain overall enrolment, enhance diversity, and help attract and produce highly educated and skilled newcomers for Newfoundland and Labrador,” said MUN Grenfell’s VP Dr Jeff Keshen.
