Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program: New Pathway to Canada

There are different ways to land to Canada as immigrant Road to Canada: Different Ways to Immigrate!. One of the newest is the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program or AIPP. This program just started in 2017 and aims to get 4000 permanent residents every year. The program is only applicable to the Atlantic Provinces of Canada which are New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.

I would say that AIPP so far is one of the least difficult way to apply to Canada as unlike the other programs, AIPP does not require LMIA. Any job offer is good as long as it comes from a designated employer in the Atlantic Canada. IELTS requirement is also not that high as it only needs a minimum of CLB 4 (Listening 4.5, Reading 3.5, Writing 4.0, Speaking 4.0). Also, when it comes to education requirement, as low as high school graduate could apply.

There are different categories of AIPP. Intermediate-Skilled Program is open for NOC 0, A, B or C. High-Skilled Program is for NOC 0, A or B. While International Graduate Program is applicable for any graduate of a two-year post-secondary diploma from a public funded learning institution in the Atlantic Canada.

In this program, the employer has an option to request the applicant to apply for a work permit to be able to come to Canada while waiting for their PR applications.

  2. Hi I am wondering with such low score of IELTS how one can even make a express entry profile. Because I heard that to get eligible for AIPP you have to have express entry profile and to make a profile atleast 6666 scoreo of IELTS is necessary. Kindly correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

    1. Express Entry is not a requirement for AIPP. Theybare two different programs and you do not have to have a profile in EE to qualify. What you need is a job offer from a designated employer in Atlantic Canada.

    1. Congratulations that you speak both English and French. AIPP requires work experience unless you will take a 2-year post graduate diploma in Canada then you will qualify under the International Graduate category.

      I would suggest for you to start processing your ECA and get your IELTS. These will help you with the application and employers would prefer applicants who already have these as processing these two really take time.

  19. @ Rei, I have some Questions,

    How do you know when to apply For AISP or AHSP. The requirements are almost same if not same. I need a clear understanding on this so as to know the best approach to follow.

    If you are pursuing your work permit, at what point do you apply for a PR. Do you start application after you receive your work permit visa. Do you apply when in your country or when in Canada. Can your spouse or dependants travel with you on work visa? If yes, how do you add their process to yours.

  20. Rei, i have seen your intervirw video with one of your former Filipino colleague. I am inspired by the way youre able to get a job in AIPP program the same way I am also in the process of working on my TWP. I.posted an inquiry to the Temporary Canada Filipino group yesterday but none has answered yet about my inquiry. Maybe you could suggest in my current situation regarding my application. I submitted my documents for TWP here in VFS Global Saaudi last month and they said it will take 6 weeks to process. I had inquired with my employer about the OEC documents requirement they have to accomplish. They said they dont process POLO fees because I am LMIA exempt and have endorsement. Id like to ask if I will be really required for OEC since I will be going from Philippines after I exit from Saudi. Any suggestion also about my inquiry. Kindly just email me for your response. I highly appreciate. Thank you.
