Newly launched Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) is now a latest pathway for immigration to Canada. This newly launched immigration program of Atlantic Provinces is expected to attract a huge number of Canada immigration aspirants in 2017 and years to come.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) – new immigration opportunity
The new AIPP may attract specific set of applicants in view of its exceptional eligibility criteria. For instance, the program may not require experience for the international students as well as graduates. Moreover, AIPP also accepts the immigrants with limited language skills and intermediate level of education (for NOC ‘C’ Occupations).
However, it’s not that the AIPP is available for applicant with limited skills only, the management, technical, professional workers, and individuals in skilled trades occupations, such as, NOC 0, A or B, can also apply in the program.
Atlantic Provinces included in the AIPP
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) includes the Maritimes provinces, i.e. Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island along with the New Newfoundland and Labrador.
These provinces and territories collectively called the Atlantic Provinces. A total of 2,000 immigrants may immigrate through the AIPP as per 2017 Immigration Plan of Canada. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) will start accepting applications for permanent residency w.e.f. March, 2017.
How AIPP Introduced?
The government of Atlantic Provinces wants the immigrants in order to combat the demographic challenges as well as the labour market requirements in the region. Though, the program was officially announced in July, 2016, however, it was being discussed since long. Last year, John McCallum (then Immigration Minister) had a meeting with provincial governments and emphasized on the need of immigrants for the Atlantic region. Thereafter, the program was officially announced.
The program at now is introduced for 3 years and will work to plug the resource gaps that various industries and businesses in the region are facing.
Key Streams of the programThe program can be broadly divided into three major streams or categories.
As the titles for the program suggest former two programs are for the skilled workers, while the last one is for the intentional graduates. Though, a few things are yet to be cleared, i.e. how the allocation of immigrants will be done among the provinces, and what share each category of the program will have.
Atlantic Region is a wonderful place to settle with beautiful landscape, beaches, recreation options, national parks, etc. So, if you wish to immigrate to Canada, Atlantic region is one of the best places to move to.
All you need to do is coordinate with a trusted Canadian Visa Consultancy Service, confirm all the details about the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP), and get your file prepared quickly to apply first in the program as soon as it opens in March, 2017.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.

I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
