Provinces in Canada are dedicated to attracting skilled immigrants from across the globe. Four Atlantic province; Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Labrador are working vigorously toward the goal to bring home a skilled class of foreign workers.
The main reason behind this is believed to be the aging workforce and sagging economy.
These provinces have launched the Atlantic Pilot Program to attract up to 2,000 primary immigrant applicants and their families by the end of this year. Under which applicants need a job offer and meet the requirements for work experience and English proficiency.
By 2020, the annual influx of immigrants with this entry is targeted to rise to 4,000 in the Atlantic region.
Some provinces like British Columbia focusing mainly on attracting technology talent from abroad. British Columbia has been running a program called TechPilot, designed to expand the provinceâ€™s technology talent pool and satisfy the demand for tech talent.
Officials are repeatedly citing immigration as necessary for the Canadian economy to remain competitive.
