New Brunswick is participating in The Atlantic Immigration Pilot - a three-year employer-driven immigration program to attract and retain global talent while supporting population growth and addressing labour shortages. The pilot will allow 2000 additional immigrants and their families to come to the four Atlantic Provinces, a key component of both the Atlantic Growth Strategy and the New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan.

Provincial government staff will assist local employers identify, hire and support skilled foreign workers. In turn, successful candidates will be selected for permanent residency by the Federal government.
