Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

Good day all

I am wondering if anybody has successfully applied for Permanent Residence under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP)?! How long did it take from when they received your complete application and started processing, before you were asked to do medicals and how long did it take to complete the whole process where IRCC started verifying your application to receiving your PR?

@Isabella I actually just saw a post on the sacanada facebook page last night, with regard to a member that went over to Canada successfully via the AIPP. Maybe you could have a look and/or search there for some more info.

If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take for the whole process from when they accepted your application until you received your PR?

I see you live in Manitoba.  How did you apply under the AIPP if you don't live in Atlantic Canada?  Can you move out of Atlantic Canada that quickly?

Welcome to Atlantic Canada.  Nova Scotia is a beautiful part of the country.

For AIPP, how do we obtain Job offer's, do we need to engage recruiter's in Canada who can help us get the job offer from designated employers.

@Talent79 Hi there, the AIPP is very confusing on the website, do you need to obtain a job offer from the list of employers first? Or is there another way to pursue this route? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Genee

@Clarence@GeneeP AIPP is all about being proactive, you have to job hunt like there is no tomorrow. At least 5 applications a day, all customised😝😝, and contact people directly on LinkedIn as well, i.e. CEO's and HR people in your field.

  1. NB: Look for jobs from designated employers as well as non designated ones (who will have to become designated to go forward)
  2. NB: At the same time take IELTS and get ECA (ECA takes at least 2 months-ish so get it done sooner rather than later)
  3. Get a job offer. With the job offer your employer endorses you to a settlement service provider who will help you with getting a settlement plan etc. and all your documentation processed
  4. Send settlement plan back to employer
  5. Employer uploads all info - endorsement plan, job offer etc. to AIPP
  6. Get certificate of endorsement (needed to apply under AIPP)
  7. Apply for PR for whole family under AIPP - it's paper based application, i.e. you send it in via post (documentation similar to EE just with lower thresholds, e.g. IELTS score, Proof of funds)
  8. Wait for PPR - (supposedly faster than other streams)
  9. OPTIONAL -> Apply for Temporary work permit at the same time OR after submitting PR application so you can arrive early and begin work. This permit can be gotten in as little as 1 month. PR application will still continue.

If an employer you get a job from is not yet designated they can apply for designation and from there the process follows normal AIPP. If you convince them you are an asset they are willing to go through the process of designation, so market yourself and sell yourself as the next best thing, better than sliced bread.

This youtube video is VERY helpful especially showing how to look for job offers
