As a group of Canadian Immigration Consultants, the team at Racer Immigration know there’s more than one way to immigrate to Canada.
Just because an application doesn’t meet the requirements of the Invitation to Apply (ITA), doesn’t mean the Canadian dream is dead. There are places and provinces that want and need new people—and they have instituted programs to get them. In this case, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) aims to make the Maritime provinces more attractive to prospective immigrants.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) is a 3-year program aimed at bringing in as many as 7000 immigrants to Canada’s Maritime Provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador).
The program offers a number of advantages. For example, the required employment skill level is lower. In this case, job training or a high school education is sufficient. Work experience is not a requirement either, so long as applicants complete a 2-year school program at a publically funded institution in Atlantic Canada.
The language requirement is also lower compared to ITA requirements. Basic language requirements of CLB 4 in speaking, listening, reading, and writing are enough to meet application requirements.
Finally, AIPP aims to help newcomers with a unique plan designed to help them adapt to life in Canada. This include referrals to community resources, help in locating housing and transportation, and assistance in enrolling for essential public services (health cards, SIN numbers, child tax benefits).
