Immigrate through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot: get a job offer

Get a job offer

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot closed on December 31, 2021, and provincial endorsements are no longer being issued. If you have a valid provincial certificate of endorsement, you can still apply for permanent residence under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot until March 5, 2022.

The Atlantic Immigration Program has replaced the pilot. You can submit your permanent residence application to the new program starting March 6, 2022.

You must receive a job offer from a designated employer in Atlantic Canada to participate in the pilot.

We don’t match you with open jobs.

To see a list of designated employers participating in the pilot, check the provincial websites:

When a designated employer offers you a job, they’ll give you an Offer of Employment to a Foreign National form [IMM 5650] (PDF, 1.54 MB). You must:

  • make sure you meet the employment requirements listed in the National Occupational Classification
    • Your job offer doesn’t need to be in the same field as other jobs you’ve had.
  • make sure you qualify for the program the employer selected in the job offer – High-skilled, Intermediate-skilled or International Graduate Program
  • sign the Offer of Employment to a Foreign National form and keep a copy for your records
    • You’ll need it when you work with a service provider organization on your settlement plan and for your permanent residence application.

As of June 1, 2019, your spouse or common-law partner can apply for an open work permit if:

  • you have a work permit through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, and
  • your job is listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A, B or C in the National Occupation Classification.
