AIPP has two programs for skilled workers: Atlantic High-Skilled Program (AHSP) and Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program (AISP)Launched in 2017 for an initial three-year pilot run; Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) extended the pilot till December 2021 to maintain the program’s momentum.

Nominees must have skills to fill job shortages or be planning to buy or start a business in Alberta. They must also be able to provide for their families. The program is run by the governments of Alberta and Canada.If you are nominated through the program, you may apply for permanent residence status together with your spouse or common-law partner, and dependent children. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada manages applications for permanent residence. The federal government also makes final decisions on these applications.
