Hire through the Atlantic Immigration Program: How the program works for employers

About the program

The Atlantic Immigration Program helps you hire qualified candidates for jobs you haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada as temporary residents.

Before you can make a job offer to a candidate, you must first become designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.

Once you’ve offered a job and the candidate has accepted, there are several steps that you and the candidate need to complete. If you and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate may then apply for permanent resident status in Canada.

We’ll help you through this process by providing various resources, such as training and services offered by the Dedicated Service Channel.
