The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program Announces Details

The details of one of the most exciting immigration programs from Canada, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, are out. In the year 2017, nearly 2,000 aspiring immigrants can submit their application to become the permanent resident of Canada.

This pilot program will be in effect for 3 years and provinces that are included in it are New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
