Atlantic Immigration Pilot

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is an employer driven program which allows international student graduates and both highly skilled and intermediately skilled workers, who meet the criteria of the program, to apply from inside or outside Canada, for permanent residence in one of the four Maritime provinces including: Nova ScotiaNew Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.

This program requires that you have a full-time, non-seasonal job or job offer. This allows you to take the next step which is getting a designated settlement service provider organization to provide you with a ‘needs assessment and a settlement plan’ for you and any adult members of your family.

The next step after that must be taken by a designated Atlantic province employer, who must submit the job offer that was extended to you, the ‘needs assessment and settlement plan’ that you obtained, along with the employer’s endorsement application to the province, which upon approving your application, provide their own letter of endorsement for permanent resident status in Canada. 123Visa will help you submit a package that does you the most good by ensuring every detail is covered, every step of the way. We will help you present a comprehensive, professional looking application to help you score as high as you can in your assessments.
