Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

 

Atlactic Province:

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

 

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot has 3 kinds programs:

  • Atlantic High-Skilled Program
  • Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program
  • Atlantic International Graduate Program

The work experience, education, and job offer you need will depend on whether you are applying as a worker or an international student graduate. The other requirements are the same for both.


WORK EXPERIENCE

Skilled Workers

You must have worked at least one year (1,560 hours total or 30 hours per week) within the last three years. It can be full-time, non-continuous, or part-time, as long as it adds up to 1,560 hours.

  • The work must be in one occupation (but can be with different employers) and paid (volunteering or unpaid internships do not count)
  • Workers apply as either high-skilled workers or intermediate-skilled workers.
    • High-skilled workers must have work experience at NOC skill type/level 0, A, or B.
    • Intermediate-skilled workers must have work experience at NOC skill level C.

Check the requirements to make sure you select the right job. If you are eligible to apply for both, apply as a high-skilled worker.

The experience can be gained from inside or outside Canada.
