Canada Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (A.I.P.P.)
Immigration Consultants in Scarborough, Toronto
What is the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program?
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) is for Canadian employers who are looking to hire and for foreigners who wish to immigrate to Atlantic Canada. The Pilot is an additional pathway and is not a replacement of existing immigration programs. The program was launched in 2017 with the initiative to stimulate economic growth in the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The program has been extended until December of 2021.

How does the Program Work?
There are three Immigration Streams applicants can apply under this program:
- Atlantic International Graduate Program
- Atlantic High-skilled Program
- Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program
What are its employer requirements?
The Pilot is employer-driven and employers have several obligations before hiring a foreign national. They must submit an expression of interest to their Provincial Immigration Office, apply to become a designated employer and partner with an immigrant settlement agency.
When the employer wishes to hire a suitable candidate, they must provide a job offer letter and settlement plan (provided by the immigrant settlement agency) then submit a provincial endorsement application identifying one of the three Immigration Streams based on the candidate's work experience. The candidate should obtain a Work Permit while applying to become a Permanent Resident.
What are its applicant requirements?
The requirements for each stream usually consist of a job offer, education and language requirements.
