The first steps to apply for the Atlantic Immigration Program

Candidates must meet the federal criteria as well as the requirements established by the participating community, where they are expecting to settle.

In order to participate in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, candidates must receive a job offer from a designated employer from the Atlantic Canada Region. Employers do not need to go through the process of obtaining a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) under this program.

Before receiving a job offer, employers are also required to be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic Province where the candidates will be employed. To be designated, your organization must:

 

  • be in good standing

  • have been operating in the Atlantic region for at least 2 years

  • work with a settlement service provider organization to help your candidates get settlement services

 

Employers will be required to apply for designation once by one of designated the Atlantic provinces, they wouldn’t be required to apply for each candidate. Employers with locations in multiple provinces will be required to apply for a separate designation for each province. Employers must meet certain requirements, including a commitment to support the newcomer and their family as they integrate into their new life in Atlantic Canada. Once designated, employers would receive a “Confirmation of Designation” from the province.

General Requirements

 

  • Job Offer from a designated employer: Job offer must be full-time, at least 1 year duration, non-seasonal, position is skilled and classified under NOC 0, A, or B. Job offer also needs to be supported by the province’s Certificate of Endorsement, that indicates the job offer is genuine, needs assessment has been completed and settlement plan is in place.

  • Skilled work experience: Minimum of 1-year paid work experience that is in occupation related to job offer that was within the last 3 years

  • Education: Minimum Completion of Secondary School (High School) or its equivalent. For candidates educated outside of Canada, the Canadian equivalency of their highest level of education must be proved by obtaining an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from one of the IRCC’s designated organization service providers.

  • Language: Level 4 of the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) in English or the Niveau de compétence linguistique Canadien in French

  • Provincial Endorsement: Candidates must be endorsed by an Atlantic province and be issued the letter of endorsement

  • Settlement funds: Candidates must show that they have enough money to support themselves and their family members, if applicable, after landing in Canada unless they are already working in Canada under a valid work permit. The amount of settlement funds required is determined by the size of the family.
