April 2, 2017 - Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program gains popularity

IRCC has announced that the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program was gaining rapid and significant interest from employers.

As of March 31, 2017, 50 employers were formally designated, with another 200 employers in the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and PEI, expressing interest.

The Atlantic provinces are responsible for designating employers to participate in the pilot, and also endorsing those applicants who can apply for permanent residency. Additionally, the provinces play a role in facilitating connections between employers, settlement service providers and other government services.

As of March 31, 2017, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program is accepting permanent residence applications for three programs under the pilot:

  • the Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program;
  • the Atlantic High-Skilled Program; and
  • the Atlantic International Graduate Program, aimed at international students.
