UPDATES: IRCC is now accepting applications under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. It is a new Canadian Immigration Program, a great opportunity for international students and skilled workers. Here are 5 steps in applying the Atlantic Immigration Pilot:
Step 1 – Find out if you are eligible to apply
The work experience, education, and job offer you need will depend on whether you are applying as a worker or an international student graduate.
For skilled workers, the programs are Atlantic High-Skilled and Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled.
For International Student Graduates, they offer Atlantic International Graduate Program.
Step 2 – Obtain a Non-Seasonal Job Offer
After you determine which Atlantic specific program you will apply, get a non-seasonal job offer from a designated employer in an Atlantic province. Look for employers hiring for this program at the following provinces:
- New Brunswick
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
- Newfoundland and Labrador
Check the provinces’ website for job hiring under Atlantic Immigration Pilot.
Step 3 – Secure a Needs assessment and Settlement plan
If you are lucky to have a job offer, you and your family members need to get a settlement needs assessment. The plan will help you and your family to settle in Canada, inform you about the community where you will live and places where you can get assistance to settle.
Step 4 – Wait for your Endorsement letter
The employer must send the job offer, the settlement plan for each adult family member, and an endorsement application to the province for review. If the province approves the application, they will send you an endorsement letter. You must include the letter with your immigration application.
Step 5 – Then Apply
There are three different programs under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. Which program you apply for will depend on your work experience, your education, and the job offer.
