General Requirements under AIPP

Job Offer

A candidate must receive a job offer from a designated employer in Atlantic Canada to participate in the pilot.

Optional Temporary Work Permit

Certain applicants may apply for a temporary work permit before submitting their permanent residence application. This work permit gives the chance of working while waiting for the permanent residence application to be processed and finalized.

Settlement Plan

Candidates for all three programs require a Settlement Plan after receiving an offer of employment. The settlement plan outlines the resources specific to them and their families needs. To complete the settlement plan, the candidate does not need to be in Canada but it has to be completed with an approved settlement service provider.

Provincial Endorsement

Each job offer made requires provincial endorsement. The application for endorsement is conducted by the employer once the candidate has their settlement plan completed. Once the provincial endorsement process is completed the candidate can apply for Permanent Residency with the certificate of endorsement.
