Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

This pilot program helps employers in Atlantic Canada hire foreign skilled workers who want to immigrate to Atlantic Canada and international graduates who want to stay in Atlantic Canada after they graduate. There are criteria which are mandatory to become eligible

On March 1, 2019, we announced:

Note: A 2-year extension of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot changes that give

  • international graduates more time to apply
  • more flexibility for hiring health-care professionals
  • changes to the requirements for temporary work permit applications (starting May 1, 2019)

There are 3 programs in the pilot that employers can hire you through. You may qualify for more than 1 program, but you can only apply through 1.

For all 3 programs, you have to show proof that you meet the language, education and work experience requirements and that you have enough money to support you and your family when you come to Canada.
