Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP)

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.

AIPP

This is an employer-driven program designed to help employers in Atlantic Canada hire qualified candidates for jobs they have been unable to fill locally.
To immigrate to Atlantic Canada through the pilot, you must be a recent graduate of a publicly funded institution in Atlantic Canada or a skilled worker who meets the program requirements.
You can be living abroad or already be in Canada temporarily. You must receive a job offer from a designated employer in Atlantic Canada to participate in the pilot. If you receive a job offer from an employer:

  • ask for a copy of the employer’s Confirmation of Designation, or
  • tell them about the Atlantic Immigration Pilot and ask them to consider becoming designated, if they aren’t already
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.

High-Skilled Worker Stream

To qualify under this stream, an applicant must have a job offer from a Designated Employer for a duration of at 12-months for a position under National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B. In addition to a job offer, applicants in this stream must meet the following criteria:

  • Work Experience: A minimum of at least 12-months of full-time, skilled work experience (or the equivalent amount in part-time).
  • Education: A Canadian high school diploma, or the foreign equivalent.
Intermediate-Skilled Worker Stream

To qualify under this stream, an applicant must have a job offer from a Designated Employer for a permanent position under National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, B, or C. In addition to a job offer, applicants in this stream must meet the following criteria:

  • Work Experience: A minimum of at least 12-months of full-time, work experience (or the equivalent amount in part-time) at NOC level 0, A, B, or C.
  • Education: A Canadian high school diploma, or the foreign equivalent.
International Graduates Stream

To qualify under this stream, an applicant must have a job offer from a Designated Employer for a duration of at least 12-months under National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, B, or C. In addition to a job offer, applicants in this stream must meet the following criteria:

  • Work Experience: No work experience requirement.
  • Education: A completed educational credential (minimum 2 years) from an institution in an Atlantic province where the applicant lived for at least 16 months in the final two years of study. This credential must have been completed within the previous 24-months.

The requirements that are the same for all of them:

  • Language Proficiency: A minimum of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 on an approved test in either English or French.
  • Proof of Funds: Demonstrate sufficient funds to support oneself and one’s family when settling in Canada.

NEGAR SHABANI

The process to apply to study in Canada was very difficult and confusing for me, until my friend told me about Uniglobe Immigration… They helped me get my college admission, study permit and also my husband’s work permit in a short period of time. Mr. Ranjbar applied to the best study options that I could have had and it saved me thousands of dollars. The best thing was that they were always approachable and gave quick replies to every query. Also, they are very genuine, careful, attentive and professional. I am really thankful to Uniglobe Immigration and especially to Mr. Ranjbar who turned my immigration case into a success in a very short time. I highly recommend this company for any immigration related services.
