The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) will help address labour market challenges in the Atlantic Provinces by assisting employers in attracting and retaining skilled immigrants. New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador are working closely with the Federal Government to ensure the successful development and delivery of the AIPP.
Starting in early March 2017, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will begin accepting permanent resident applications targeting international students, intermediate-skilled workers and high-skilled workers. According to 2017 Immigration Plan Canada, this program will facilitate the entry of 2,000 principal immigrants into Atlantic Canada in 2017.
