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.
