Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP)
The Atlantic provinces of Canada Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador have come together with the federal government to launch an exciting new employer-driven immigration program, which is likely to attract the attention of potential immigrants and employers alike.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) has unique eligibility requirements that may be particularly attractive to certain workers and graduates. For example, eligible international students and graduates may note that no work experience is required before an application may be submitted. In addition, workers in intermediate level (National Occupational Classification C) occupations, as well as workers with limited language ability, may be able to immigrate through this program.It should be noted that the program is also open to workers in management, professional, technical, and skilled trades occupations (NOC 0, A or B).
AIPP will accept 2,000 principal immigrants into Atlantic Canada in 2017
