Workers

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a partnership between the Government of Canada and the four Atlantic provinces: New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot lets Atlantic employers hire qualified candidates for jobs that they haven’t been able to fill locally.

Candidates can be living abroad or be in Canada temporarily, but must have a job offer from a designated employer before applying.

Are you a candidate for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot?

If you and the employer meet the program requirements, you and your eligible dependants will receive permanent resident status, and can live and work in Canada. For more information on the steps you need to follow see: How to immigrate – Atlantic Immigration Pilot
