What are the basic requirements For an Employer to Utilize this Program?

When an employer wishes to take part in this program before any job offer can be made, the employer must be designated by the provincial government where the candidate will be working. Being designated means that the employer is qualified to offer jobs under the AIPP.

 In order to be designated by the province the employer’s organization must be:

  • be in good standing (under the province in question)
  • have been operating in the Atlantic region for at least 2 years
  • work with a settlement service provider organization to help your candidates get settlement services

Once these requirements are met, the employer can then apply to become designated (at no cost).
