ACADA Launches NEW Immigration Navigator Program

Published: March 14, 2022


A key part of ACADA’s mandate is to provide the Atlantic Canadian aerospace, defence & security sector companies with the tools for growth. ACADA’s immigration navigator program is a pilot intended to help industry to navigate the complexities of the immigration system, to attract and retain foreign talent – from seeking out candidates, to getting the boots on the ground.

ACADA in collaboration with Atlantic Canadian law firm, McInnes Cooper, is offering a cost-shared opportunity to access the expertise of their immigration advisory services. Working in partnership with McInnes Cooper, we have laid out the pathway to grow your talent pipeline. Industry financial support for McInnes Cooper’s immigration services can be accessed until fiscal year-end March 31, 2022. 

NOTE: These services, in both official languages, are available on a first come, first served basis.

McInnes Cooper will work with interested companies on a one-on-one basis. Including:

  • Initial consultation to understand the needs of your company
  • Guiding your company through the immigration strategy development process
  • Assisting your company with completing the recommended immigration application, such as a Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”), a work permit application, or a permanent residence application

The initial consultation is a fixed cost, while the remainder of the process will be determined by the level of service recommended. Your company could potentially receive up to a 50% discounted service rate.
