申请人除了满足上面各类的基本要求外（Meet eligibility requirements），大部分工作由雇主完成，申请核心是省政府认可提名的雇主。获得省政府对雇主提名的
Certificate of Endorsement 后才能进入到联邦移民申请阶段。
1. Meet eligibility requirements
2. Find a designated employer
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot doesn’t match you with open jobs . We don’t know which employers are looking for workers.
An employer has to offer you a job before you can apply.
If an employer wants to hire you, make sure they are designated by the province where you’ll be working . Ask to see the Confirmation of Designation from the province where you’ll be working.
3. Get a job offer
If an Atlantic employer offers you a job, make sure it meets the requirements of the program you qualify for.
The employer will give you an Offer of Employment to a Foreign National [IMM5650] (PDF, 1.54 MB) form. Sign it. Keep a copy of the form because you’ll need it for your settlement plan.
You must meet the employment requirements for the job you are offered. The requirements are listed in the National Occupational Classification. Your job offer doesn’t need to be in the same field as other jobs you’ve had.
Start your permanent resident application early
After a job offer, there are more steps before you can submit your permanent resident application. However, you can start filling in your application now .
4. Get a settlement plan
After you get a job offer from a designated employer, you and any family members who are aged 18 years and over and who will be living with you in Canada need to get a settlement plan. The plan will:
- help you settle in Canada
- give you resources and links related to you and your family’s needs
- tell you where you can go in the community to get help
These plans are free.
You’ll work with a settlement service provider organization to make this plan. If you’re already in Canada, you must work with a settlement service provider organization in the region where you’ll be working. If you’re outside Canada, there are several settlement service provider organizations in Canada you can contact.
Find a settlement service provider organization and get a settlement plan.
Settlement service provider organizations don’t know which employers are looking for workers. Don’t contact them to find a job .
Once you have your settlement plan(s), give a copy of the plan(s) to your employer. Keep a copy for yourself. If you are not in Canada, bring the plan(s) with you when you move to Canada.
5. Get endorsed by an Atlantic province
After you have your settlement plan, the province must endorse the job offer. Your employer will handle this process. Don’t submit your permanent resident application until you have been endorsed.
If the province endorses your job offer, you’ll get a Certificate of Endorsement in the mail. Include your endorsement certificate with your permanent resident application.
The endorsement application
Your employer will fill out and submit an endorsement application to the province. This will include a copy of your settlement plan(s).
Each province has its own process. Your employer may need more documents from you. You may also have to sign some forms.
Since the provinces handle endorsement, send any questions to them. IRCC isn’t involved in this step.
6. Submit your permanent resident application
Choose the application package for the program you’ll be applying through:
The application package includes the instruction guide and all the forms you need to fill out.
7. Optional: Temporary work permit
If you meet the requirements to apply for permanent resident status under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, you may be eligible to apply for a temporary work permit. You must have:
- a job offer from a designated employer that meets the requirements of the program you’re applying under
- a Referral Letter from the Atlantic province where you’ll be working
Your employer will ask for a Referral Letter at the same time they apply to have your job offer endorsed by the province.
The permit lets you begin work while your permanent resident application is being processed. The permit:
- is only for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot
- is valid for one year
- only lets you work for the employer who offered you the job
You must send your permanent resident application within 90 days of submitting your temporary work permit application.
Getting a temporary work permit doesn’t automatically mean we’ll approve your permanent resident application.
