What is the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program?

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is a fast-track immigration program that allows employers in Canada's four Atlantic provinces — Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island to hire foreign nationals for jobs they haven’t been able to fill locally.

Introduced in 2017, the federal government and its provincial government partners aim to welcome more than 7,000 newcomers and their families to the Atlantic Canada region by 2021 through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.

Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program: How it works

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot is an employer-driven program that facilitates the hiring of foreign workers. All principal applicants arriving in Canada under the pilot program must have a job offer from a designated employer and an individualized settlement plan for themselves and their family.

Once a designated employer finds a candidate who meets their employment needs and the program criteria, that employer will need to first offer them a job. Employers do not need to go through the process of obtaining a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) under this program.

Once the candidate has accepted the job, the employer will connect the candidate with a designated settlement service provider organization for a needs assessment and to develop a settlement plan. Employers will also support the long-term integration of the new immigrant and his or her family, if applicable, so they can reach the goals of their settlement plan once they arrive in Canada.

Employers that need to fill a job vacancy quickly will have access to a temporary work permit, so that the candidate and his or her family can come to Canada as soon as possible. In order to obtain this work permit, candidates will need:

  • a valid job offer;
  • a letter from the province and
  • a commitment to apply for permanent residence within 90 days of the temporary work permit application
Employer designation

Employers that would like to hire skilled immigrants under the pilot program must apply to the province(s) in order to receive designation. Employers with locations in multiple provinces will require a separate designation for each province. Employers must meet certain requirements, including a commitment to support the newcomer and his or her family as they integrate into their new life in Atlantic Canada.

Candidate Requirements

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program has two programs for skilled workers:

  • Atlantic High-Skilled Program (AHSP)
  • Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program (AISP) and one program for international student graduates.
  • Atlantic International Graduate Program (AIGP)
    • The work experience, education, and job offer required will depend on whether the individual is applying as a worker or as an international student graduate. The other requirements are the same for both.

      Other ways to immigrate to Atlantic Canada

      The Atlantic provinces have already been active in immigration over recent years, principally through the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Through these programs, the provinces have been able to welcome a wide range of skilled workers, graduates who have studied in Canada, and business immigrants such as entrepreneurs.

      Since 2015, each Atlantic province has created at least one PNP stream aligned with the federal Express Entry system, allowing candidates in the Express Entry pool who are also eligible to immigrate through one of these streams to submit an application to immigrate to the given province.

      Currently, the Atlantic PNP options include:

      • Atlantic High-Skilled Program (AHSP)
      • Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program (AISP) and one program for international student graduates.
      • Atlantic International Graduate Program (AIGP)
        • What is the step by step process for AIPP?

          To apply for Canada PR Visa through AIPP, you just have to follow three simple steps:

          • Step 1 – Designated Employer: After an employer in Atlantic Canada becomes a designated employer of the province, they find a suitable candidate who meets the minimum requirements of AIPP and offers them a job.
          • Step 2 – Endorsement: In this step, the employer will help you to get in touch with a settlement service provider. They will help the candidate to prepare a settlement plan. With the settlement plan, the employer completes the application for provincial endorsement. Province will review the application and will send an endorsement letter to you.
          • Step 3 – Application for PR Visa: With the endorsement letter and all the required documents, you have to submit your application for PR Visa to the IRCC. After a successful evaluation of the application, you will be able to move to Canada as a permanent resident with your family members.
