The Atlantic Immigration Pilot program was launched by the Canadian government to fill the labour gaps of the Atlantic province of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. This strategic approach facilitates recruitment for positions that do not find a local match.
Through this program, the Atlantic Provinces and the provincial government partners will welcome more than 7,000 skilled workers with their families to the Atlantic region by 2021.
To participate in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program, the applicant must have a job offer from one of the Atlantic Provinces. Under the program designated employers, have to identify and recruit foreign skilled professionals for a job vacancy.
