How to get Canada PR through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot?

Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Canada comprises of 4 provinces namely Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Canada launched the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) in 2017. The fast-track program allows employers in Atlantic Canada to hire foreign workers for jobs that cannot be filled locally. 

Canada aims to welcome 7,000 immigrants and their families through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program by 2021. 

AIPP uses three programs to hire foreign workers. These are: 

  • Atlantic High-Skilled Program 
  • Atlantic International Graduate Program 
  • Atlantic Intermediate-skilled Program 

A candidate may qualify for more than one of the above programs. However, you can only apply under any one program. 

To be hired under AIPP, a candidate may be living outside Canada or within Canada temporarily. 

The requirements of AIPP include:  

Atlantic High-Skilled Program: 

  • Candidate must have worked in a professional, skilled/technical or management job for at least 1 year 
  • Candidate should hold a qualification which is equivalent to a Canadian high school diploma or above 
  • Take a language test in either English or French to prove language proficiency 
  • Should have sufficient fund to take care of yourself and your family when in Canada 

Atlantic International Graduate Program 

  • Should have completed a diploma or degree from a public-funded educational institution in any of the 4 Atlantic provinces 
  • Should have lived for at least 16 months in any one of the Atlantic provinces in the recent 2 years 
  • Take a language test in either English or French to prove language proficiency 
  • Should have sufficient funds to take care of yourself and your family when in Canada 

Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program 

  • Candidate must have experience in a job that requires a high school education or job-specific training for at least 1 year 
  • Candidate should hold a qualification which is equivalent to a Canadian high school diploma or above 
  • Take a language test in either English or French to prove language proficiency 
  • Should have sufficient funds to take care of yourself and your family when in Canada 

To offer an overseas candidate a job offer under the AIPP, the employer must be designated by the Govt. of the Atlantic province. 

If the candidate and the employer meet the requirements, the candidate may apply for Canada PR through the AIPP.
