Atlantic Canada refers to the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. The IRCC has created a specific program to support employers in Atlantic Canada and to spur economic development. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot program helps employers recruit skilled workers and international graduates, and sponsor those candidates for permanent residence.

In addition to the permanent residency options, the IRCC also has several ways that you can visit and stay in Canada on a more temporary basis.
Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident Pathway
The Provincial Nominee Program is for foreign workers who want to become permanent residents of Canada and have the skills and education to contribute to a province (or territory) and wish to live in that province. Each province establishes its own streams and defining criteria.
The majority of Canada’s sponsorship options rely on an individual or employer to partner with you, but the IRCC does provide an option for self-sponsorship. You are able to sponsor yourself for permanent residency if you:
● Are willing to make a substantial contribution to the culture and athletic environment of Canada
● Have experience in athletics or cultural activities
Your experience must be world-class or you must have secured this experience through self-employment. Once you have demonstrated your experience there are additional medical and security checks.
Kindly book a consultation for more information about the self-employment sponsorship options or for support with an application. Book A Consultation.
