This program will now include three more immigration pathways that lead to Permanent Residence in Canada.

Under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program, employers play a role to ensure that immigrant workers successfully settle and integrate into the Atlantic region. The principal applicant choosing any one of the immigration pathways under this program will have a job offer. The applicants must also possess an individual plan for settlement for themselves and their family members upon arrival to Canada.
