Ottawa introduced a new update for the Atlantic Immigration Program
On September 23, 2022, the Government of Canada introduced a new update for the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP). According to the new instructions, candidates who are already working in Canada do not need to show proof of funds. Those who do not work but have a valid work permit must demonstrate that they have enough funds available for settlement in Canada at the time of application and when the application is finalized. Depending on the applicant’s family size, candidates have to use 12.5% of the current low-income cut-off (LICO) for urban areas with populations of 500,000 or more.
