Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

Atlantic Immigration is one of those Immigration projects that the Canada government has launched, which has become a subject of talk around immigration aspirants. There are four major reasons for the same:

Atlantic Immigration gives you an opportunity to migrate to Canada with a secured job in hand. You receive assured settlement services from specific organizations in your process of starting your new life in Canada.Your family members can also accompany you as Permanent residents. So it’s not just job and earning but a complete resettlement package. The academic and experience requirements for this program is absolutely minimum.

The most important step in going forward with Atlantic Immigration is the choice of the right province. Let’s get a basic idea about each of them and choose the right province to apply for.

1. Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia. Its provincial capital is Halifax. Nova Scotia is the second-smallest of Canada's ten provinces, with an area of 55,284 square kilometers (21,300 Sq mtr), Nova Scotia's cold winters and warm summers are modified and generally moderated by ocean influences. Nova Scotia is a warm province due to the effect of the ocean. Owing primarily to the milder winter temperatures experienced in Nova Scotia compared to the rest of Canada.

Nova Scotia’s defense and aerospace sector is one of the major source of defense equipment manufacturing in Canada. The Nova Scotia travel and tourism industry includes more than 6,500 direct businesses, supporting nearly 40,000 jobs. The province also boasts a fast growing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector which consists of over 500 companies, and employs roughly 15,000 people.

Fisheries is another major industry in Nova Scotia that contributes to its economy in a large scale.

According to the Canadian constitution New Brunswick is the only bilingual province. About two thirds of the population declare themselves Anglophones and a third francophone. One third of the total population speak both English and French. Tourism accounts for about 9% of the labor force directly or indirectly.

New Brunswick has a continental climate with slightly milder winters on the Gulf of St. Lawrence coastline. Elevated parts of the far north of the province have a subarctic climate.

Newfoundland is roughly triangular. Each side is about 400 km long, and its area is 108,860 km2 (42,030 Sq mi).

The fishing industry remains an important part of the provincial economy, employing roughly 20,000 and contributing over $440 million to the GDP. Aquaculture is a new industry for the province.

Other than seafood processing, paper manufacture and oil refining manufacturing in the province consists of smaller industries producing food, brewing and other beverage production.

Agriculture and Tourism is also a significant contributor to the province's economy. In 2006 nearly 500,000 non-resident tourists visited Newfoundland and Labrador, spending an estimated $366 million. Tourism is most popular throughout the months of June–September, the warmest months of the year with the longest hours of daylight.
