Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP)

OR CALL +1 (647) 494-7977

The Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) is designed to facilitate the entry of skilled foreign workers and international graduates into Canada’s Atlantic provinces—Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. This employer-driven initiative collaborates with designated employers to address labor market gaps and bolster economic development in the region.

AIP’s key features include strong employer engagement, where designated employers offer job opportunities to eligible candidates. The program uniquely focuses on the Atlantic provinces, encouraging candidates to settle in these vibrant communities. AIP establishes a pathway to permanent residency, allowing successful candidates to contribute to Canada on a long-term basis.

AIP is driven by objectives such as fostering economic growth in Atlantic Canada by addressing local labor market demands. The program enhances regional vitality by attracting skilled professionals, contributing to the diverse and multicultural fabric of the Atlantic provinces. AIP’s streamlined process creates an efficient immigration pathway, promoting collaboration between employers, candidates, and the immigration system, aligning with its broader objectives of regional development and prosperity.

The AIP stands as a testament to Canada’s commitment to regional development and providing individuals with opportunities to contribute to the prosperity of specific geographic areas within the country.

You can also explore other immigration pathways more suited to each particular situation. Additionally, you can get acquainted with other OINP programs.
