Hire through the Atlantic Immigration Program: Submit an endorsement
Submit an endorsement application to the province
The province must endorse your job offer before the candidate can apply for permanent residence.
The provinces are responsible for the endorsement process. If you have any questions about the endorsement process, contact the province.
Visit the province’s website to get their endorsement application:
The endorsement application requires you to:
- show that you haven’t been able to fill the job with someone locally
- you don’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment
- show that the job offer meets the program requirements
- send the completed and signed Offer of Employment to a Foreign National [IMM 0157] (PDF, 317 KB) to the candidate for their signature
- the candidate will have to submit this form with their permanent residence application
- include the settlement plan for the candidate and their accompanying family members
- have completed the free onboarding training (confirmation of completion is sent directly to provinces)
- show proof that you’ve completed the intercultural competency training
If the candidate is applying for a work permit:
- you must request a referral letter from the provincial government when you’re applying for endorsement
- the candidate needs to include the referral letter in their application for a temporary work permit
The provincial endorsement application forms will tell you how to provide this information. The province may also ask for additional documentation.
If the province endorses the job offer, they’ll send a Certificate of Endorsement to the candidate. Once the candidate gets their endorsement certificate, they can apply for permanent residence.
After your first endorsement, the province will refer you to the Dedicated Service Channel to help you as a designated employer of the program.
