Lobster Farms in Canada are desperate to hire foreign workers


Representatives from lobster farms in Meteghan, Nova Scotia in Canada are having a hard time finding locals to work at their companies. Why? Because the work is difficult, and it doesn’t pay very well. Also, you’ll have to live in a pretty remote area of Canada.

None of these are of concern for most prospective foreign workers, who would gladly take the lobster farms’ offers of employment.

What’s the catch? There are a couple of things to consider.

Canadian employers (including lobster farms) must first look for local workers (Citizens and Permanent Residents) before they can ask for permission from the Government of Canada to hire foreign workers.

Currently, lobster farms hire foreign workers under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program.

What’s the problem? You still have to meet the minimum requirements for immigrating to Canada, including language, education and work experience. If you don’t qualify, you can’t apply.


What is the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program?

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) is a program aimed at bringing skilled immigrants and international graduates to meet the labour needs of the Atlantic region (including Nova Scotia).

The goal of the AIP is to ensure that Newcomers to Atlantic Canada stay to contribute to the region’s economic growth.

First launched in 2017, the AIP is a partnership between the Government of Canada and the provincial governments of the Atlantic region.

The Government of Canada’s immigration arm, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) worked closely with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the provincial governments of Atlantic Canada to produce the following results.

As of February 2019, 1,896 Canadian employers have been approved to hire foreign workers under the AIP. These designated employers have so far made over 3,729 job offers to skilled immigrants and international graduates.

These job offers have resulted in over 2,535 approved Permanent Residents who are bound for Atlantic Canada.

Recent changes to the AIP makes things a little bit easier for international students and Canadian employers in the healthcare sector in the Atlantic provinces.

International graduates have 24 months after graduation to apply under the AIP. IRCC made this change to help more international graduates to apply under the AIP and give applicants more time to complete the process.

Canadian employers in the health care sector will be allowed to hire internationally trained nurses to work as continuing and home care support workers (they will NOT be hired as nurses).

Provincial governments in Atlantic Canada will be given better oversight over the AIP, allowing them to better manage the designation of Canadian employers allowed to hire foreign workers under the program.

IRCC will impose language, education and work experience requirements for all applicants under the AIP effective May 1. If you fail to meet the minimum requirements, you will not be approved for a Work Permit.

Why can’t they find people to work for lobster farms in Canada?

Nova Scotia has a couple of problems: one is that they have an aging population. Another is that they have a lack of workers willing to do jobs like working at lobster farms.

Right now, they’re asking themselves: Where are we going to get all the workers?

Canadian employers, including lobster farms in Nova Scotia don’t think very highly of the Government of Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), which limits the number of foreign nationals companies can bring to Canada.

Canadian employers in the region take credit for pushing the Government of Canada for the establishment of the AIP, which has been extended until 2021.

Canadian employers want IRCC to make the program permanent. They are looking at hiring foreign workers under the program from countries like the Philippines.

Lobster farms in Nova Scotia aren’t the only ones looking for foreign workers.

If you’re looking for work under the AIP (including lobster farms), make sure they’re on this list before you submit an application. Remember, Canada is a NO PLACEMENT FEE COUNTRY.
