Canada increases the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Allotment
The Canadian government decided to increase the number of skilled immigrants and their family members who can obtain permanent residence through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program this year by 500, raising the total allotment to 2,500. The Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Ahmed Huusen, announced the increase on Tuesday after meeting with the premiers of Canada’s four Atlantic Provinces- Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfound Land and Labrador. In an interview with reports, Hussen said “The provinces have told us that they need more space to ensure that they have the people that they need to continue to grow their businesses right here in Atlantic Canada”. As of May 31, 2018 Huusen, said that there were 1,000 employers designated under the one-year old AIPP, which allows approved employers to attract skilled foreign workers with the work experience to fill in the labour force gaps. The IRCC says that it has received 900 applications for permanent residence through the AIPP since it was introduced. Admissions targets through the AIPP are measured at; 1,000 for 2018, 2,000 for 2019 and 4,000 for 20.
