Here are top 10 Things you need to Know About the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program of Canada

1. A 2-year extension of the Atlantic Immigration Pilot has been announced to give international graduates more time to apply, more flexibility for hiring health-care professionals and provide foreign workers the opportunity to immigrate to Canada through an arranged employment from a designated employer in the Atlantic Province. The programs end in December 2021 and so time is gold when it comes to this program.

2. Applicants who receive a job offer from a designated employer and a referral letter, issued by one of the Atlantic provinces, may be eligible to apply for a one-year Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)-exempt employer-specific work permit. LMIA-exempt facilitates the overall process making it a lot easier and faster for aspiring immigrants to settle in Canada.

3. A language level of 4 in the Canadian Language Benchmark in English or the Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens in French for each of the four language skill areas is required to be eligible under the AIPP. This low IELTS requirement opens doors to many aspirants who have a hard time hitting high IELTS scores.

4. International graduates now have 24 months to apply to become permanent residents (PR), as opposed to the previous 12-month requirement. This will allow new graduates time to find full-time work and apply for PR under the AIPP.

5. A designated employer finds a candidate who suits their employment needs in addition to program criteria. Once they find a suitable individual, the employer must first extend a job offer. Again, It’s important to note that in the AIPP, the employer is not required to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), thus shortening the hiring process.

6. Your spouse/common law partner can apply for an open work permit if your job is listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A, B or C in the 2016 National Occupation Classification (NOC)

7. Healthcare employers will be able to hire internationally trained nurses to work as continuing care and home care support workers in order to fill job vacancies. Home care support worker program is becoming a popular route to Canada. There are currently over 5,000 jobs available for home support workers in Canada and are currently in demand in provinces such as Ontario and Saskatchewan.

8. Three programs operate under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, which target different types of candidates. Atlantic High-Skilled Program, Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program and Atlantic International Graduate Program.

9. Candidates through all three Atlantic Immigration Pilot programs require a Settlement Plan after receiving an offer of employment. The Settlement Plan is designed to help immigrants settle in Canada by highlighting resources specific the family’s needs.

10. A low Proof of Funds amounting to $3,240 is required for a single applicant, $4,034 for two applicants, $4,959 for a family of 3 and so on and so forth. This low POF requirement is one of the reason why people choose the AIPP over others.
