Please be aware that although IRCC announced in February 2021 that the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program would become a permanent program, they did not say when this would happen.  Most recent news is that the Pilot Program will end on Dec 31, 2021 and the new program will only come online in March 2022. Most of the Atlantic Provinces have already stopped taking in New applications. We will update this page once more information is known.



Atlantic Immigration Program: Designated Employers List

Foreign workers interested in the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) must receive a job offer from an employer designated by its respective provincial government to take part in the pilot.

The Government of Canada encourages foreign workers to ensure the employer has been officially designated under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot. All job offers from designated employers must be endorsed by the respective province before the foreign worker can apply for Canadian permanent resident status through the AIP. 

The Atlantic provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island (PEI), and New Brunswick have published their lists of designated employers under the AIP.


Please note that designation under the AIP does not mean an employer is actively recruiting foreign nationals nor does it imply that they intend to in the future.
