The Atlantic Immigration Program operates as a partnership between Canada’s federal government and the four provinces in the region: Nova-scotia, New Brunswick, New Foundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island. The Atlantic Immigration Program is a federal immigration program that helps employers recruit skilled foreign workers and international graduates to meet labour needs. It is an employer-led program that aims to bring candidates to the region to fill positions for which Canadian citizens and permanent residents are not available.
To hire through the AIP, employers do not need a Labour Market Impact Assessment. Instead, they must meet requirements to become designated to make job offers.

The Agri-Food Pilot helps address the labour needs of the Canadian agri-food sector. In recent years, Canadian agriculture and agri-food industries have struggled to fulfill labour shortages and workforces have had to rely on short-term, seasonal work permits in order to find employment. This program aims to attract and retain workers by offering them a pathway to permanent residence in Canada, allowing the workers and their families to work and live in Canada for as long as they like.

It provides a pathway to permanent residence for experienced, non-seasonal workers in specific industries and occupations. It will run until May 2023.

To apply for permanent residence under the Agri-Food Pilot, you need

> eligible Canadian work experience in one or more of the eligible industries and occupations
> a full-time, non-seasonal job offer from a Canadian employer in one of the eligible industries and occupations (outside of Quebec)
> to meet or exceed the language requirements
> to meet or exceed the educational requirements
> to have settlement funds (if applicable)
> to maintain temporary resident status (if already in Canada)
