Under the Immigration Pilot Program, the applicant should be immigrating to Canada to fill a gap in the labor force. The program accepts graduate students and skilled workers who are hired by a company in Canada.

It is a program that is run by the Federal Government of Canada in partnership with the Atlantic Provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

The program includes:

  • Atlantic-Intermediate Skilled Program: it is for workers who have National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill level C.
  • Atlantic Skilled Program: this targets workers with experience in NOC skill type O, A, or B
  • Atlantic International Graduate Program

Requirements for eligibility to any program depend on the particular program you will be applying to, for instance, the International Graduate Program has no work experience requirement for applicants. You also need to have studied in an Atlantic Institution of education for at least two years.

If you apply as a worker, you must have at least one year of full-time paid work experience in the same occupation, in or outside of Canada. You should also hold a certificate, diploma or degree or an equivalent if you didn’t study in Canada.

The job offer should be full-time, non-seasonal and from a designated Atlantic employer. Fill in our Free Assessment Online Form to determine your eligibility or contact us.
