Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program
Just a couple of weeks ago Canada launched a new immigration plan -‘The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP)’,with some unique features. The AIPP program has been welcomed by the employers across all the four Provinces covered under the program – Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island (PEI), New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Employers have rushed to be first to sign up and be the designated employers for the scheme. Over 50 employers have already been allocated as the designated employers. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program will be processing 2000 principal applications in 2017. 

To participate, the applicants must have a job offer with a designated employer. This will allow them to progress and gain Provincial Nomination for the province of employment and then go on to complete their permanent residency application. Canada’s Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen announced the 50 employers chosen so far on March 31, describing the new immigration program as off to a good start.

Each of the four provincial governments partaking are responsible for designating employers within their own province. The designation of employers is a unique attribute of the AIPP scheme. The process for employers varies from province to province but in all cases the employer must send the job offer, a settlement plan for each adult family member and an endorsement application to the province for review. If approved the province will send the applicant an endorsement letter to be included with their immigration application.

Another unique attribute for the scheme is the requirement for a settlement plan. This new requirement aims to ease the integration and settlement process for new residents. Attorney David Cohen encourages the move stating that integration is just as important as they entry process. He feels the transition process should be supported and hopes the model will be successful and implemented elsewhere.

The Settlement Plan has a collaborative style and is developed with the candidate, the employer and a recognized settlement provider. The settlement provider will meet with the applicant to develop their settlement plan. This, and the immigration scheme, is open to those already working in Canadian on a temporary basis, and new foreign applicants hoping to move. As part of the settlement plan applicants must show proof they have enough money to support themselves and their family once they immigrate.

Eligibility criteria varies for each stream of the program – the streams are the Atlantic High-Skilled Program, the Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program and the Atlantic International Graduate Program.
