Atlantic Immigration Pilot is Now Open

Online Payment

Atlantic Immigration Pilot now accepting permanent resident applications under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot - the first immigration program of its kind in Canada and a key initiative of the #AtlanticGrowth Strategy.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is for skilled workers and international student graduates who want to permanently live in:

  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Nova Scotia
  • Prince Edward Island

They will process up to 2,000 applications in 2017.

Get a job offer

To apply, you need a full-time, non-seasonal job offer from a designated employer in an Atlantic province. Contact the provinces to learn which employers are hiring with this program:

  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Nova Scotia
  • Prince Edward Island

Get a needs assessment and a settlement plan

After you get a job offer from a designated employer, you and your family members need to get a settlement needs assessment. You can get one from a designated settlement service provider organization. After the assessment, each adult member of your family will get a personalized settlement plan. The plan will:

  • help you settle in Canada,
  • tell you about the community where you will live, and
  • tell you where you can get help for you and your family.

Get an endorsement letter

The employer must send the job offer, the settlement plan for each adult family member, and an endorsement application to the province for review. If the province approves the application, they will send you an endorsement letter. You must include the letter with your immigration application.


There are three different programs under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. Which program you apply for will depend on your work experience, your education and the job offer. Find out how to get the forms, pay the fees and submit your application.

Note: Canada uses the National Occupational Classification (NOC) to classify jobs.
