If you are a foreign national seeking to work and settle in Canada, the Canadian Atlantic Immigration Pilot is an excellent stream to take towards a permanent job and residency in one of the beautiful maritime provinces of Canada. Based on its success, it continues to be a flagship regional economic immigration program, complementing the provincial nominee programs in each Atlantic province.
As with most Canadian immigration pilot projects, the invitation to come to Canada to fill a position, that cannot be filled by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, is based on the local labour market and the applicant’s ability to meet the requirements of the program. On March 1, 2019, IRCC announced a 2-year extension of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. The new changes to the program allow international graduates more time to submit their applications. It also provides more flexibility for hiring healthcare professionals.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot offers 3 streams under which qualified employers may hire a foreign national. They include:
- Atlantic International Graduate Program
- Atlantic High-skilled Program
- Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program
In order for employers to participate in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, and make a job offer to a foreign national, they must be designated by the provincial government of the province to which the candidate is applying. Ask us more about these programs. A successful application through this program can lead to permanent resident status in Canada.
