Atlantic Immigration Program
The Atlantic Immigration Program is a pathway to permanent residence for skilled foreign workers and international graduates from a Canadian institution who want to work and live in 1 of Canada’s 4 Atlantic provinces—New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, or Newfoundland and Labrador. The program helps employers hire qualified candidates for jobs they haven’t been able to fill locally.
About the Program For Employers
The Atlantic Immigration Program helps employers hire qualified candidates for jobs they haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada as temporary residents.
Before an employer can make a job offer to a candidate, they must first become designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
Once they have offered a job and the candidate has accepted, there are several steps that the business and the candidate need to complete. If the business and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate may then apply for permanent resident status in Canada.
