In March 2019, the Canadian government announced:
- 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)
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot helps you to hire qualified candidates for jobs you haven’t been able to fill locally.
These candidates can be living overseas or in Canada temporarily. There are 3 programs you can use to hire someone:
Atlantic International Graduate Program
Atlantic High-skilled Program
Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program
Each program has requirements that you and the candidate must meet.
Before you make a job offer, you must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
Once you make a job offer, you and the candidate will work through several steps. If you and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
