The Atlantic Immigration pilot program is an employer-driven program for Immigration in which the employer can choose the suitable young and skilled applicants for Immigration.
AIPP provides a pathway to Permanent Residency(PR) aspirants provided that they have a job offer in one of the Atlantic provinces of Canada. The provinces are – Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Before applying for Permanent residency, candidates require a work permit to work legally in Canada.

Fast processing is part of the reason why AIPP has gained so much importance over the years. Also, the candidate also has the right to move to another province after filing some paperwork and staying in the designated province for some time.
