The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a partnership between the Government of Canada and the four Atlantic provinces:
• New Brunswick
• Newfoundland and Labrador
• Nova Scotia
• Prince Edward Island
It helps Atlantic employers hire qualified candidates for jobs they haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada temporarily.
Before an employer makes a job offer, they must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
There are three programs an employer can use to hire someone:
• Atlantic High-skilled Program
• Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program
• Atlantic International Graduate Program
Each program has requirements that the employer and the candidate must meet. Once the employer makes a job offer, employer and the candidate will work through several steps. If employer and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
These are the steps an employer needs to take to get the designated employer status.
1. Work with a settlement service provider organization
2. Apply to the province to become designated
When the employer finds the right candidate
3. Make sure the job and the candidate meet the requirements
4. Make a job offer
5. Submit an endorsement application to the province
6. Optional: Letter of Support for a temporary work Permit.
