for successful employment candidates for
Atlantic Canadian businesses

ATLANTIC IMMIGRATION PILOT PROGRAM (AIPP)

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) is a program that offers expedited work permits and residency visas for successful employment candidates for Atlantic Canadian businesses. This is a program for specific skills and the employer must be AIPP-approved by the federal Immigration Ministry before they promote their job vacancies.

Recently for example, Citizens International has been assisting a major software design firm in sourcing top programmers internationally. Once a pre-interview is conducted to determine suitability, a series of job interviews will take place by video conference and if the candidate is successful, a work permit will be issued quickly for the employee to travel to Canada.

Once arrived and in the job, a resident visa will follow usually within 6-12 months and the path to citizenship has begun.
