Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project was created to attract more people to Atlantic Canada. The program is employer driven and its objective is to match job seekers with employment opportunities in Atlantic Canada.

For those obtaining a job offer from overseas, the residency process is accelerated. For most aspiring immigrants however, getting a job offer from a Canadian company they have never met can be difficult.

In principle, a candidate is eligible for residency if they have high school, an official English test score and one year work experience in the last three years in the same job description as the job offer.

In practise, having education, language ability, and job experience in the same job code is a difficult combination. Skills may be transferable if they remain in the same NOC levels of A, B, or C, however, the final decision is subjective and up to the discretion of the reviewing officer. NOC D occupations are not eligible for the pilot project and down skilling your experience in order to find employment contract is not permitted.

Speaking from experience, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot has proven effective at retaining temporary foreign workers already in Canada. By coming into the country as a foreign worker, and transitioning into residency, candidates are able to avoid cost prohibitive settlement fees.

I recommend that unsuccessful job seekers understand the supply and demand factors of the Canadian labour market.
