New Brunswick seeks a better Atlantic Immigration
Pilot
  • The business community in New Brunswick is
    seeking the streamlining of the hiring process
    for overseas workers through its Atlantic
    Immigration Pilot. Many Employers are worried
    about the delay as it takes around a year for the
    arrival of workers for such positions needing an
    urgent solution. Moreover it has a job vacancy
    rate of 2.7 percent. The study of Canadian
    Federation of Independent Business says that the
    number of vacancies in the province is 6,300.
    Previously the issue was high unemployment, but
    presently it is the labor shortage.

Atlantic region faces a struggle
  • The federal government in Canada is familiar with
    the Atlantic region, which faces an acute
    struggle in dealing with a shrinking labor force
    and an aging population. This region comprises
    Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,
    and Newfoundland Labrador.
  • The program also has an aim to bring 2,000 fresh
    immigrants annually for specific jobs to the
    region. Additionally it plans to increase it to
    4,000 by 2020. Furthermore these Employers need
    to have a registration and approval to access the
    AIP. Candidates get help in preparing the
    Settlement Plan, and seek endorsement of the
    provincial government before they apply for PR.
    This process takes much time.

Tackling the challenge
  • The Immigration officials are tackling this
    challenge by allowing AIP candidates to enter the
    country through a work permit while the
    applications are in the processing stage. New
    Brunswick faces shortage of workers in areas like
    call center clerks, Fast food workers, engineers
    and accountants.
