Atlantic Canada Aims to Attract Skilled Overseas Workers

December 2017, 02
EMAIL  Print A+
Atlantic Provinces of Canada have collectively commenced a program - Atlantic Immigration Pilot, in which the applicants require a job offer and must meet the norms for English proficiency and work experience.

Four provinces located in Atlantic Canada have decided to undertake several measures to attract skilled workers from abroad. At present, the local governments face realities concerning an aging workforce and slumping economy.

Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Labrador provinces, presently pursue a collective goal, to attract 2,000 primary immigrant applicants, (and their families), aggressively, before December 2017. By 2020, they aim is to target 4,000 immigrants annually in the region of Atlantic Canada.

Today the governments rely heavily on foreign persons to create jobs and improve their economy.  Canadian immigration is ambitiously set to increase in the next three years. The federal government plans to attract 310,000 new PRs in 2018 and 330,000 in 2019, increasing it to 340,000 in 2020.

Some of the provinces in Canada focus mainly to attract technological talent from abroad. British Columbia runs a program called Tech-Pilot, to expand technology talent pool of the province. This is done to meet the demand for technical talent. Officials cite immigration as a remedy for the economy to remain competitive.

Statistics Canada projects that the share of working men and women, in the inhabitants, will decrease until 2036. By that time the senior citizens in Canada will be twice more compared to the figure in 2009.
