The Canada Atlantic immigration pilot program aims to attract international workers to the Provinces of the Atlantic region of Canada.

This program is open to any international skilled worker or foreign graduate, whether he lives in Canada or abroad.

This initiative assists Canadian employers in bringing in overseas qualified employees and graduates. Eligible candidates may apply to become permanent residents of Canada and begin working there.

The time it takes to process an application for this service is six months.

To be eligible for the program, you must meet the language criteria, have relevant qualifications, demonstrate that you have a work offer from a Canadian employer in Atlantic Canada, and demonstrate that you have enough money to support yourself and your family in Canada. The benefit of this program is that there is no set age limit; all you have to do is meet the criteria and qualify.

Who is it for

Employers in Atlantic Canada will use the pilot to recruit foreign skilled employees who want to immigrate to the province and international graduates who want to remain in the province after graduation.
