The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is an employer-driven program that helps them hiring various foreign workers across fields. All applicants applying to Canada under this program must have a job offer from an employer and have an individualized settlement plan for survival.
Once a designated employer finds a suitable candidate who meets their all requirements employment and criteria, that employer offers them a job letter.
