How the Atlantic Immigration Pilot works: (1) – The Employer Designation Process


This three-part video series
explains three new immigration programs under the Atlantic
Immigration Pilot. Immigration, Refugees and
Citizenship Canada worked with provincial governments in
Atlantic Canada to create these pilot programs, which will bring
more skilled immigrants to Atlantic Canada, to build lives
there and help the economy grow. This video, Video 1,
explains the employer designation process. Designation is the first step
for an employer interested in participating in the
Atlantic Immigration Pilot. Provinces are responsible
for designating employers in the pilot. To become a designated employer, you’ll need to meet
certain requirements. For example, you need to
demonstrate that your business is established
and in good standing. You must connect with an
immigrant settlement service provider and demonstrate that
your workplace is prepared for the arrival of a
newcomer employee. And you will need to make an
early commitment to support your recruit and their family as
they settle into their new life in Atlantic Canada. You can get the employer
designation form from the website of the province where
your business is located. Once designated, you can begin
recruiting skilled immigrants to fill positions in your
company under one of the three new programs: the Atlantic
Intermediate-skilled Program, Atlantic High-skilled Program, or the Atlantic International
Graduate Program. These programs are flexible,
in order to meet your needs, and only the candidates
you recruit can apply to immigrate to Canada. And you don’t need to get a
Labour Market Impact Assessment for jobs that you fill
with a skilled immigrant through these programs. When you find your recruit,
you need to let them know which of the three programs
they should apply to. The right program
will be based on their previous work experience. If your recruit has one year
of high-skilled work experience, they should be directed to the
Atlantic High-skilled Program. If they have one year of
intermediate-skilled experience, they should be directed to the Atlantic
Intermediate-skilled Program. If they have no work experience,
but have, at minimum, a two-year degree or diploma from a
recognized Atlantic educational institution, candidates should
be directed to the Atlantic International Graduate Program. Now that you know which program
criteria your recruit meets, you can offer them a job using
the “offer of employment” form located at
