67 Point Immigration To Canada

Atlantic Immigration Program and Process

The Atlantic provinces of Canada were provided with an Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program which was launched in 2017, and it is set with the target of inviting 7000 migrants to the Atlantic region of Canada by the end of the year 2020. Recently, in March 2019, the program has been extended to Dec 2021. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) is meant to hire skilled foreign workers for the Atlantic region of Canada, and this includes the freshly graduated International students in the Atlantic Canada region.


The Atlantic Provinces of Canada include -

  • Nova Scotia
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Prince Edward Island

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) was launched with the objective to combat the labor market and dense population challenges in the Atlantic region of Canada. Bu inviting the global talent to work and settle in this part of Canada, the government means to set the skill gap started. When the provinces find a lack in Labour market demand and supply, then they can invite the eligible candidates to Canada by offering them a job in their province through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) Program.


The main categories of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) are –

There are three subcategories in this program, and the candidates need to meet the eligibility requirements in order to be selected for migration in the Atlantic region. The three subcategories are –

• Atlantic High Skilled Program (AHSP) – This program is meant for skilled workers who have high school education to their credit and have attained a job offer for a full- time continuous occupation in NOC skill type O, A or B from any of the Atlantic Provinces of Canada. The other requirements of the program include –


  • Work experience of the technical, managerial or professional field for one year
  • Language competency of reasonable stature
  • Enough funds to settle
  • Minimum of High school education as per Canada education board standard

Atlantic Intermediate Skilled program (AISP) – This Program includes the candidates who have a minimum of high school education to their credit and a full-time continuous occupation in NOC Skill Type O, A, B or C from an Atlantic province in Canada. The requirements for this program entail-

  • A minimum language score in English or French
  • High school education of Canadian standards as a minimum
  • Enough funds to support oneself and family
  • Job specific training for a minimum period of one year.

Atlantic International Graduate Program (AIGP) – This program is for the graduates of international origins, and they have a job offer of at least one year in NOC skill type O, A or B or C from an employer from the Atlantic Provinces of Canada. The core eligibility requirement of this program are -

  • Have a graduate degree or diploma to his credit
  • Good money to support oneself and family to settle
  • A minimum language score in either English and French Language
  • The candidate should have live in Atlantic province for at least 16 months in the last two years.

As noted, one of the crucial requirements in all these subcategories is a job offer. Thus, it can be safely said that Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) Program is an employer-driven pilot program.

The eligibility requirements for Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) Program.

Unless the eligibility requirements are met the candidate cannot migrate to Canada. The following are the requirements for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) Program.

  • The candidate should have an education matching up to the Canadian High school diploma
  • The NOC skill Type accepted for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program is NOC “C.”
  • The minimum language score requirements for migration in the region is CLB 4
  • The work experience of the candidate should be in management, professional or skilled occupation.
  • The minimum language skills in either English or French language
  • The candidate should have enough funds to settle in the country.
  • The Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) is a must requirement in all the subcategories of selection
Why has the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program become so popular?

The core reasons for the popularity of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program are the benefits that this program entails. Some of them are listed below:

  • The NOC Skill Type C is a less acceptable skill in the Express Entry program, but this skill Type is a widely accosted skill in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program.
  • The language requirements under this program are marginally low as someone with the CLB 4 score can also utilize the benefits of selection
  • A high secondary education level is also sufficient for migration through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program.

Owing to the advantages attached, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program has served as a good alternative for all those applicants who have been unable to meet the requirements of immigration as per the Express Entry program. This latest Program of the Canadian Government is beneficial for both the parties- Canadian employers and Foreign skilled workers. Thus, it has also led to the extension of the program until the year 2020 with a large number of applicants expected to migrate through the program

What is the procedural requirement for an employer who is willing to use Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program?

If an employer wishes to invite a skilled foreign worker to the country and settle, then there are certain requirements for the employer as well. An employer who likes to take the advantage of Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP) program to help their business, and as a designated employer, one is not allowed to hire the candidate without gaining Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Also, there are also supposed to help the hired employees to settle in the concerned province. Moreover, the employer should be able to prove that he was unable to fill the desired position by a local workforce and therefore a skilled foreign worker is required. It is only an employer with the good standing who will be able to fulfill these requirements successfully and meet the labor market needs as per the required standards.
