The current immigration processes to live in Canada

Canada is looking for young people to work in its country. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program began to be promoted two years ago. It is a process designed to attract young and skilled immigrants to four provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.

In turn, this project is joined by the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot, which seeks to employ immigrants in small communities that are not from the Atlantic region, with the exception of Quebec. These include: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Yukon.

It is worth noting that, for this year, some modalities to go to Canada contemplate specific documents in the face of the health emergency caused by covid-19 (negative PCR test, for example).

Candidates who could receive permanent residence:

Highly rated

It is the Atlantic High-Skilled program, aimed at workers with managerial, professional or technical work experience. Interested parties can apply to work for a Canadian affiliated company.

To access job offers, it is recommended to use the Job Match and Job Bank search engines. There they will be able to create a profile to upload the curriculum vitaeo (resume), language certificates, educational evaluations and the current regulations established by the covid-19 pandemic.

Candidates who are fluent in English and French have a greater chance. Also those who have a relative living in Canada or already have a job offer in the country.

Of intermediate skills

The Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled program is designed for candidates with specific high school education or job training. Students, business specialists, entrepreneurs, specialized or semi-skilled workers can apply.


The International Graduate Program is designed for those candidates who have a degree from an institution financed by a province of Atlántico. No work experience required.

For the temporary work permit, the Canadian Embassy has enabled the opportunity to apply for a temporary work permit before applying for residence. In this way, you can start working while the application for permanent residence is in process.

For entrepreneurs

The StartUp Visa program is designed for immigrant entrepreneurs with the potential to develop a business in Canada. The main requirement is that the business is innovative and profitable.
