Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program Work Permits
Effective date: March 18, 2020

Candidates currently working in New Brunswick who have a work permit associated with an application for permanent residency under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) should, if needed, continue to submit paper-based extension requests, 30-60 days before the expiry of the current work permit. While federal processing times have significantly increased, candidates who have applied for a work permit renewal or extension are considered to have implied status and may continue to work.


Transport Truck Drivers (NOC 7511)
Effective date: May 11, 2020

In response to changing labour market needs, the Province of New Brunswick is only considering endorsement applications for Transport Truck Drivers from designated employers that have participated in a recruitment mission led by the Province, in the past 18 months. No other endorsements applications will be accepted under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program.

All other applications will be redirected to apply through the NB Skilled Worker stream. If you have questions, please call your designated NB immigration program officer.


Occupations in the Accommodation and Food Services Sector
Effective date: May 11, 2020

Due to current labour market conditions, the Province will not be accepting application through the Provincial Nominee Program, nor issuing endorsements under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program for candidates, currently living and working outside New Brunswick, for occupations in the Accommodation and Food Services Sector.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) was developed for New Brunswick employers to hire foreign skilled workers and recent international graduates who want to live and work in New Brunswick. This program is designed for the sole use of employers who are designated under the program to be able to recruit and hire workers with the skills, education and work experience to contribute to New Brunswick’s economy.


New Brunswick employers have access to a range of Provincial and Federal Services that are committed to supporting and addressing identified labour-market needs. Please contact the Employment Development Office in your region for more information on Employment Services and the Designation process.
