Canada Atlanta Program
Canada’s Atlantic Provinces joined federal government to start new employer-driven migration program, which is focused on dragging attraction of potential immigrants and employers. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program’s (AIPP) eligibility requirements are unique and particularly attract certain workers and graduates. For instant, international graduates or students who are eligible does not require any work experience before submitting the application. Additionally workers having intermediate level occupations (National Occupational Classification C) and workers having limited language ability can also immigrate through this program.
It is a new venture which includes provinces like Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador.
The three year pilot program aims towards addressing resource gaps that certain sectors are facing, and helps businesses to attract and retain business global talents.
For skilled workers this program includes two sub categories:
- AHSP i.e. Atlantic High-skilled Program
- AISP i.e. Atlantic Intermediate- skilled Program
And a different sub- program for international graduates:
- AIGP i.e. Atlantic International Graduate Program
Educational, work experience and job offers that are required depend upon whether applicant is a worker or an international graduate.
A way for Students and Graduates to achieve PR:
For keeping the Canada’s desire for increasing number of international students and graduates, AIPP includes certain sub-program for graduates of eligible institutes. The Atlantic region has a proud and long history in the field of higher education and research.
Generally, Canadian immigration program focuses at graduates that have prior experience of at least few months in the post-graduation duration. In AIPP sub program there is no such requirements for work experience, leading a more clear and simple pathway towards Canadian permanent residence.
