As per the latest reports, number of people coming to Atlantic Canada has increased considerably over last five years. Though, the retention of immigrations in the region requires more work. Atlantic regions include a few of the most crucial Canadian provinces, which play an important part in the growth, economy, and development of Canada. Increased immigration in Atlantic Canada is really good news for the government as well as the region itself, however, retention rate is the one thing that is bothering the government over the last few years.
Key Revelations of the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council Report
The latest report from Atlantic Provinces Economic Council has revealed that about 8,300 immigrants came in Atlantic Canada in the year 2015 and the numbers will grow further for the year 2016 as 11,600 immigrants came in this region in just first nine months. Hence, despite the fact that number of people coming to Atlantic Canada is increasing, fewer people only stay in the region.
The Syrian refugees have also played a key part in the increased immigration in Atlantic region of the maple leaf country. The overall immigration to Atlantic region has tripled since 2002.
Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) played key part in increased Immigration rate
The report also claims that immigration rate in the region is also increased due to the enhanced popularity and use of Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) in Canada. The PNPs allows the different provinces to nominate individuals who wish to get PR in their province or region, as per a allocated annual quota from federal government.
The report further indicates that this year the immigration number may touch the 19,000 mark in view of the new Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project launched for three years, announced by the federal government along with the four key provinces of the Atlantic region last year.
Poor Retention Rate is a huge concern
However, poor retention rate of the Atlantic region is still a huge concern for the region as well as for the federal government. Despite the rising immigration numbers, region is losing half of them says the report. Long processing time is one of the key factors impacting the immigration of business community in the region.
Moreover, though, the applications of express entry stream gets processed within 6 months, however, the provincial nomination applications are still taking about 16 months to get processed by the federal government. So, the improvement is required in this area as well. This becomes a huge concern for the employers looking to bring in the skilled workers thick and fast. The infrastructure, employment options, healthcare services, etc. also need further improvement in the region to retain more and more immigrants in the coming years.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.

We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
