Whilst most immigration programs are driven by workers seeking employment, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program invites employers to apply for a designation allowing them to hire foreign workers.
How does it work?
Interested employers will need to apply to become a Designated Employer through their Provincial Immigration Office. As part of their submission, employers will need to establish a genuine labour market need to hire a foreign worker, and commit to supporting the new employee and their family as they integrate into life in Atlantic Canada.
Once an employer receives their designation they can recruit an employee. Under this new program, there is no need for an employer to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The AIPP has three programs for employees:
Once an employer has received their designation, they can make as many job offers as they like, however a settlement assessment will need to be done for each employee. The designation runs until the business stops meeting the requirements/agreement of the settlement plan.
