The pilot helps employers in Atlantic Canada hire foreign skilled workers who want to immigrate to Atlantic Canada and international graduates who want to stay in Atlantic Canada after they graduate.
AIPP is employer based program running in 4 Atlantic provinces:

  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Nova Scotia
  • Prince Edward Island

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot helps Employer to hire qualified candidates for jobs which they haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada temporarily.
There are 3 programs used to hire someone:

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

Each program has requirements that the employer and the candidate must meet.
Before he can make a job offer, the employer must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
Once job offer is made, employer and the candidate will work through several steps. If they meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
