Canada PR allotment for Atlantic Immigration Pilot has been increased to 2,500 by the Government of Canada which is an addition of 500 to the allocation of 2000. Thus, a number of skilled immigrants and family members can obtain Canada PR in 2018.

The increase in Canada PR allotment was announced by Ahmed Hussen the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship for Canada. This was after a meeting with the premiers of 4 Atlantic Provinces of Canada. These are Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, as quoted by the CIC News.

Ahmed Hussen said that the increase is in line with the crucial interest and utilization of the program by the businesses in the 4 provinces. These provinces had demanded increased Canada PR allotment. This was to ensure to have access to the required skilled workers. It was also crucial for the growth of businesses in the Atlantic Provinces, added Hussen.

The 1-year-old AIPP had 1,000 designated employers as of 31 May 2018 informed Hussen. This permits the employers to hire skilled immigrants for scarce skills in the labor market. It also helps the immigrants to fast-track Canada PR for themselves and family members, added Ahmed Hussen.

The number of designated employers in 2018 was twice that of in 2017 revealed the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship for Canada. These had already offered job offers to 2,000 skilled immigrants and graduates in the Atlantic region, he added. This is a crucial improvement over the 250 job offers in the inaugural year of AIPP in 2017, said Hussen.

IRCC has said that 900 Canada PR applications through AIPP have been received since its inception in 2017. For 2018 the admission target in AIPP is 1,000, for 2019 it is 2,000 and for 2020 it is 4,000.
