Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program – this has been launched as a Program by the Atlantic Provinces in synchronization with the Federal Government. This is basically a new Employer-Driven Immigration Program which is meant for potential Immigrants and Employers with skills.
An Employer-Driven Program implemented to overcome the labour shortages in the four Atlantic Provinces of Canada.
The main motive behind this is to attract and retain skilled Immigrants and International Graduates which will fill the requirement of efficient workforce in the Atlantic Region. This is going to ensure the long-term retention and integration of newcomers in Atlantic Canada which will contribute to the economic growth.
This was launched in March 2017 as AIP by the Government of Canada with the Atlantic Provinces. Under this, there were 1,896 AIP Designated Employers in Atlantic Region as noted on 25th February, 2017. Over 3,729 Job-Offers were made available for Foreigners of International Graduates. In this lieu, over 2,535 applications were already approved destined for PR or already in the Atlantic Canada.
Now it has been extended by two years to December 2021. Within this time-frame, the IRCC and the Atlantic Provinces will get more time to assess the innovative aspects which are:
- Employer-Oriented Approach
- Settlement Plan (Mandatory)
- New Model of Partnership with the Atlantic Provinces and ACOA.
For International Graduates: As per this, the International graduates will get 24 months in total of Post Graduation in which they can apply for AIP any time. (The number of International Graduates participating in AIP will increase and they will have enough time to get through with the whole PR Application Process).
For Employees of Healthcare Sector: The Employers in the Health Care Sector will be able to hire Internationally-Trained Nurses which can perform their tasks as Care & Home Care Support Workers to fill-up the job vacancies in this sector immediately.
NOW – Your Spouse/Common Law Partner can apply for Open- Work Permit.
