Provinces disappointed by the drop in Atlantic Immigration Program numbers and PNP cap

The Atlantic Canadian province premiers are displeased by the decrease in immigrants from the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) and unchanged Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allocations in the recent Immigration Levels Plan 2024-2026. They insist on meaningful collaboration with the federal government, given the impact of immigration level changes on the region. Data indicates a 28.2% drop in new permanent residents through the AIP this year, while PNP saw a 33.1% increase. However, despite population growth, the unchanged 2026 target for new permanent residents effectively reduces immigration levels under the PNPs. The premiers urge Ottawa to bolster immigration to meet labour demands and stimulate economic growth.
