Employer Designation

AIPP Immigration Immigration

Introduction:

Through Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, the federal government — together with the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island — aim to welcome nearly 7,000 newcomers and their families to the Atlantic region of Eastern Canada in the next three years. International skilled workers may apply through Atlantic High-Skilled Program and Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program, while international students may apply through Atlantic International Graduate Program. Employers in Atlantic Canada who wish to hire foreign talent through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) must first receive employer designation.
