The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) is an economic growth initiative developed in partnership between the federal government and Canada’s Atlantic provinces. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, administered by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), streamlines the immigration process for newcomers who have obtained a job offer from a designated employer in the Atlantic region.
Newfoundland and Labrador participated in the AIPP as part of a pilot project that began on November 24, 2018. The project will run for two years with an option for renewal for one additional year.
The program is designed to attract highly skilled workers to fill shortages in key sectors of the local economy, such as health care, fisheries, and agriculture. It also helps employers who are looking to expand or diversify their workforce by providing temporary foreign workers with permanent residency status after working for 12 months in Newfoundland and Labrador.
