The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a three-year employer-driven immigration program to attract and retain global talent while supporting population growth and addressing labour shortages. The pilot will allow 2000 additional immigrants and their families to come to the four Atlantic Provinces, a key component of both the Atlantic Growth Strategy and the New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan.
Provincial government staff will assist local employers identify, hire and support foreign workers. In turn, successful candidates will be selected for permanent residency by the Federal government.
Employers interested in participating in the Pilot, must meet the following designation criteria:
- The employer wants to hire full-time, non-seasonal international candidates;
- The employer and their business are well-established and in good standing; and
- The employer is committed to meet the settlement needs of international candidate(s) and accompanying family members.
