Candidates would need to have a job offer to be eligible to apply under this stream. You could be overseas or in Canada when you apply for this visa.

In this stream you could get hired under 1 of the 3 following programs:

  1. Atlantic High-Skilled Program
  2. Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program
  3. Atlantic International Graduate Program

You could be eligible under more than one of the above listed programs, but you should only apply under one.
