The four Atlantic Provinces: New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, entered into a partnership with the Government of Canada.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program is a special partnership between the four Atlantic Provinces and the Government of Canada. It aims to help Atlantic businesses of different sizes, and attract skilled foreign workers and international graduates to fill job vacancies. Besides, the employee doesn’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to hire employees under the pilot.
To hire an appropriate international student graduate or permanent skilled worker, you first need to be a designated employer in an Atlantic province. You should know that you can become a designated employer with no particular candidate for a job in mind.
Become a province designated employer
Each province manages all employer designations for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot individually. Note that criteria may vary depending on whether you apply for Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia or Prince Edward Island.
Also, you will be able to work with your province settlement service provider organizations. They will provide help assisting in settlement and integration in Canada.
