Atlantic Immigration Pilot

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot 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, the Applicant needs a job offer from a designated employer in an Atlantic province. With the support of the employer, a settlement service provider organization will help the Applicant and their families settle in Canada.

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

Up to 2,000 applicants will be accepted each year under the three-year Pilot.

Why Atlantic Immigration Pilot?

With a shrinking labour force and ageing population, immigration of skilled workers is required to meet pressing labour market needs and to ensure long-term economic growth and continued success for Atlantic Canada.

Flowing from the Atlantic Growth Strategy, the goal of the Pilot is to help attract and retain skilled immigrants in Atlantic Canada. A job and settlement supports are considered to be key to having newcomers succeed and stay in the region. Therefore, all principal applicants arriving in Canada under the Pilot will have a job offer from a designated employer and an individualized settlement plan for them and their family.

Employers are required to work with settlement service provider organizations to help newcomers to Canada integrate into their new communities in Atlantic Canada so they stay there long-term and help grow the economy in the region.

Employers designated under the Pilot will NOT need to apply for and obtain a Labour market impact assessment (LMIA) for the job offer made to a Foreign national.

The Pilot includes three new employer-driven permanent residence immigration programs, two for skilled workers and one for international student graduates. The work experience, education, and job offer vary for the worker and international student graduates, though the other requirements remain the same.
