Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program – AIPP

This class is for employers in Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island) to help them hire foreign skilled workers and international graduates who want to settle in these Atlantic provinces permanently.

How to apply?

 The recruitment process and documentation work are initiated and completed by the employer. Once a candidate is identified through the employee recruitment process, then the employer along with their settlement service organization will guide the candidate about the type of application they will need to fill out and will provide them with support documents such as the provincial confirmation of endorsement letter, and a completed offer of employment form to submit with the application. After all background work is completed, the candidate completes the permanent residence application and sends it to IRCC- Centralized Intake Office – Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program for processing.
