The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a pathway to permanent residence for skilled foreign workers and international graduates who want to work and live in Canada’s 4 Atlantic Provinces: Prince Edward Island (PEI), New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and New Foundland and Labrador.

 

This is an employer-driven program designed to help employers in Atlantic Canada hire qualified candidates for jobs they have been unable to fill locally. To immigrate to Atlantic Canada through the pilot, you must be a recent graduate of a publicly funded institution in Atlantic Canada or a skilled worker who meets the program requirements. You can be living abroad or already be in Canada temporarily. And you must receive a job offer from a designated employer in Atlantic Canada to participate in the pilot.
