ATLANTIC IMMIGRATION PILOT
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a program that was designed by the Canadian Government to help employers hire foreign skilled workers who want to immigrate to Atlantic Canada. It also benefits international graduates who wish to stay in any of the Atlantic provinces after graduation.
While Canada has always relied on a skilled-point based system for immigration, the Atlantic immigration pilot takes a different approach. The pilot is divided into three programs which an employee can use to hire someone. Each program has requirements that the applying candidate must meet. It is crucial that the applying candidates understand that they can only apply to a designated employer who is taking part in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. A full list of participating employers can be found here.
Check out the requirements for the programs on the screenshot below. NOTE: This program has been extended until the year 2021. If you were interested to live in Canada, this is a great opportunity for you.
Benefits of this program.
-If you are an international student, you can apply for Permanent residency right after you graduate. Without any work experience.
-Skilled foreigners can also apply for casual jobs. The employers that are on the list are not looking for rocket scientists. Some of the jobs are low-skilled jobs that anyone can do.
-You are not ranked depending on points. As long as you secure a job, you should be on the right track.
