About

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a partnership between the Government of Canada and the 4 Atlantic provinces New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

It helps employers in the Atlantic region hire job candidates who aren’t Canadian citizens or permanent residents. If the candidate and employer meet the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.

The Intermediate-Skilled Program is for workers with experience in areas like management, professional, technically skilled jobs, ones requiring a high school education and/or job-specific training.
