The province of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada has published the list of employers participating in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program. The provincial government is encouraging aspiring immigrants to get in touch with these employers.
The published list has 172 employers that have been designated under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program by the Newfoundland and Labrador Government. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program fast-tracks applications from international students and eligible foreign workers with a job offer from Canada for Permanent Residence.
The designated employers’ list spans the varied business landscape of the province from restaurants and coffee shops to aeronautical companies. The employers are located in and around the easternmost province of Canada.
Newfoundland and Labrador is the only province participating in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program to make its list of designated employers’ public, as per CIC News.
The Govt. of N&L anticipate thousands of new job opening in the province between today and 2025 due to the population decline in the province.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program was introduced in 2017. This program aimed at helping employers from the 4 Atlantic Provinces namely Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to hire eligible foreign workers. Foreign workers and overseas graduates of higher educational institutes help fulfill job positions in the provinces which cannot be filled by locals.
An employer needs to be designated by the respective provincial government before they can participate in the AIPP. This process requires employers to work with a settlement service provider in the province to help the applicants and their families settle and adjust to the Canadian life.
The quota of Visas for the AIPP was set at 1000 for 2018, 2000 for 2019 and 4000 for 2020. However, the rising popularity of the program led the Federal Govt. to raise the quota for 2018 to 2500 in July 2018. The pilot program is run as a partnership between the 4 provincial governments and the Federal Govt. of Canada.
