ISANS Needs Assessment



The federal government has launched the Atlantic Immigration Program as a permanent program.


Please note that key features of the permanent program include:

  • All employers designated under the pilot will be required to be re-designated under the permanent program.
  • Under the permanent program, all designated employers are required to complete mandatory on-boarding training provided by the federal Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
  • Mandatory inter-cultural competency training will also be required for all employers, prior to endorsement, unless the employer is deemed by the province to be exempt from the training.


Please check out the federal government’s website for an overview of the program https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/atlantic-immigration-pilot.html.


Please reach out to the provincial government of your destination province if you have additional questions.


Once employers are re-designated and have completed the mandatory trainings, ISANS will provide settlement plans for the new program. We look forward to serving you in the future.
