Immigrate through the Atlantic Immigration Program: Apply for permanent residence

Changes coming to this application process

Starting September 2022, we’re making it mandatory to apply online for certain permanent immigration programs. Each program will change to mandatory online applications on a different date.

Find out when each program will switch to online applications.

If you can’t apply online, and require accommodations, including for a disability, you can ask for the application in another format (paper, braille or large print). We’ll provide more information on this option soon.
