Atlantic Immigration Program

The Atlantic Immigration Program replaced the former Pilot Program on January 1, 2022. This builds on the success of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program and is a permanent pathway for employers to hire qualified candidates for jobs they are unable to fill locally.

Unlike other immigration pathways, the Atlantic Immigration Program is employer-driven. An employer must become designated by the Nova Scotia Labour, Skills and Immigration to participate in the Program.

This Program targets skilled foreign workers and international graduates from Atlantic Canada who have a full-time, non-seasonal job offer in NOC 0, A, B, or C. Requirements for work experience, language, and education vary by NOC code and whether candidates meet the requirements for international graduates under the AIP. Under this Program, every principal applicant will come to Atlantic Canada with a job offer and an individualized settlement plan for themselves and their family.
