What is Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program?

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program is for skilled immigrants and international student graduates who want to permanently live in:

New Brunswick

Newfoundland and Labrador

Nova Scotia

Prince Edward Island

To apply, you need a job offer from a designated employer in an Atlantic province. With the support of your employer, a settlement service provider organization will help you and your family settle in Canada.

If you are applying as a student graduate, you also must have graduated from a publicly-funded institution in one of those provinces.

It is a three-year employer-driven immigration program to attract and retain global talent while supporting population growth and addressing labor shortages. The pilot will allow 2000 additional immigrants and their families to come to the four Atlantic Provinces, a key component of both the Atlantic Growth Strategy and the New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan.

Provincial government staff will assist local employers identify, hire and support foreign workers. In turn, successful candidates will be selected for permanent residency by the Federal government.

Employers interested in participating in the Pilot, must meet the following designation criteria:

The employer wants to hire full-time, non-seasonal international candidates;

The employer and their business are  well-established and in good standing; and

The employer is committed to meet the settlement needs of international candidate(s) and accompanying family members.
