Atlantic Immigration Pilot became permanent
On December 17, 2021, the Government of Canada announced that the Atlantic Immigration Pilot became permanent. The Pilot launched in 2017 has brought over 10,000 new permanent residents to Atlantic Canada and helped communities thrive and prosper, and contributed to the region’s population growth.
The permanent Atlantic Immigration Program will officially open on January 1, 2022, and attract skilled workers to address economic and demographic challenges, as well as the labour shortage in the region. Eligible candidates will be able to submit applications for permanent residence (PR) under the new program on March 6, 2022.
