There is no doubt that a lot of aspiring immigrants to Canada believe that the major immigration routes are Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Program. However, the truth is, the immigration pathways and possibilities to Canada are more than those two, our main focus today would be on the “The Atlantic Immigration Pilot”. This is an immigration pathway that is not majorly considered when the thought to immigrate to Canada comes up.  The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Pathway is a fast-track immigration program that allows employers in Canada’s four Atlantic provinces — Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island — to hire foreign nationals for jobs they haven’t been able to fill locally.


Introduced in 2017, the federal government and its provincial government partners aim to welcome more than 7,000 newcomers and their families to the Atlantic Canada region by 2021 through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is designed to welcome additional newcomers to the Atlantic Canada region to fill the needs of local employers and communities.

The three-year pilot program allows designated local employers to identify, recruit and retain global talent. The program also has the goals of supporting population growth, developing a skilled workforce, and increasing employment rates in the region.

.Once a designated employer finds a candidate who meets their employment needs and the program criteria, that employer will need to first offer them a job. Employers do not need to go through the process of obtaining a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) under this program.

Employers that need to fill a job vacancy quickly will have access to a temporary work permit so that the candidate and his or her family can come to Canada as soon as possible. In order to obtain this work permit, candidates will need:

  • a valid job offer;
  • a letter from the province; and
  • a commitment to apply for permanent residence within 90 days of the temporary work permit application.

The process is an easy-peasy process, no stress or difficulty, all that is needed is to secure a job in one of the provinces amongst the group of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program and the candidates and their families get invited as soon as possible. All they have to do is plan or draft out a settlement plan that can cover the expenses and well-being of the family. This is one of the fastest yet most underrated immigration pathways to secure a Permanent Residency in Canada within the twinkle of an eye.
