The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program(AIPP) was launched in 2017 for hiring foreign skilled workers who want to immigrate to Atlantic Canada and international graduates who want to stay in Atlantic Canada after they graduate. On March 1, 2019, an extension was announced with changes to give international graduates more time to apply to fulfil the high shortage of labour in the Atlantic provinces of Canada. The four provinces that are in partnership with the government of Canada in AIPP are:
There are 3 programs in the pilot that Canadian employers can hire through in Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program:
Step 1: Becoming a Designated Employer
To become a designated employer:
Now the employer is all set to find desired candidates and can offer them a job.
Step 2: Endorsement
This requires an applicant’s input to move further. As soon as the candidate gets a job offer letter from Atlantic employer, he/she needs to contact the settlement provider organization to get his/her settlement plan. A designated employer might suggest some settlement service provider but it is not necessary to go with that particular provider.
The applicant will have to submit the settlement plan to the employer from whom the job offer is received. The employer will submit the candidate’s settlement plan along with the job offer and endorsement letter to the provincial government. After detailed verification and review, the province approves that application and sends an endorsement letter to the applicant.
Step 3: Immigration Application
Once an endorsement letter is received, the candidate needs to submit his/her permanent residency application to IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada). Once IRCC receives an application, it will process it within 6 months. If the job vacancy needs to be filled out urgently, then IRCC allows a temporary visa to an applicant for immediate immigration. After approval, IRCC grants permanent residency through the AIPP program to the candidate.
Had fantastic experience. My case officer was Dhara, she was very prompt and dedicated towards it. She was also thorough in the documents and resolve any queries within a day. Wish to have same support in future also.
I would like to thank you to the team and specially Ms. Norin for continuous attention on the file preparation. I am very satisfied with all services. I look forward to seeing great support from winny as always for further processes.
I have started with processing for Canadian PR with the Winny Immigrations. So as far my experience is quite good. My first meeting was set up with Amit Goswami. He is explained me the entire process in detail and answered to my each question. Call back and email feedback to resolve the issues is quite effective with him. I appreciate his support and I looking for the same support till the end of the process. Thank you so much.
I have had a wonderful career-changing experience with Winny. They have really good knowledge, experience and the right people to do the job. Ofcourse, there are many products and may/may not fit all people. But Winny does guide you very well with all information that is required to make the best call for yourself. Remember Winny is to guide you, help you for a career path. A Profile’s success & failure is on the Embassy and Candidate solely. There were a few hiccups in my profile from the embassy side, but it was handled PERFECTLY by the team Winny. That’s what makes it outstanding than all other immigration consultants. I have referred many of my friends and shall continue doing the same. Keep up the good work 💪 Winny!
My experience at Winny is nice. They are very cooperative and giving their client proper suggestions and guidance. Even in pandemic, staff was making all the efforts to function normally. They provide professional service and really extremely great advice. I appreciate the Winny team for their services. They are focusing on accuracy which is good part. Still my process is not completed but till now I am satisfied with the services. Definitely going to recommend to everyone.
