Have labour gaps?
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a big opportunity for our province. Employers in Nova Scotia can use the Pilot to hire foreign workers and international graduates.
- The Atlantic Immigration Pilot speeds up processing at the Federal level and gives candidates a work permit while waiting for permanent residency
- Employers can skip the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process if their efforts to hire locally have been unsuccessful
- International graduates from Atlantic universities can be hired right out of school
- The Pilot gives employers access to permanent intermediate-skilled labour as well as high-skilled workers
