Each program has requirements that you and the candidate must meet. Before you make a job offer, you must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working. Once you make a job offer, you and the candidate will work through several steps. If you and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
