If you want to apply for AIP or RNIP

As part of the EMPP, you don’t need to meet some eligibility requirements for these programs:

  1. You don’t need to prove you worked the number of hours asked for in the timeframes listed. Instead, you only need to show you worked the same number of hours in general, before you apply.
  2. You can apply for a loan to meet the requirement of having enough money to support yourself and your family when you come to Canada (your settlement funds).

These exemptions do not apply to PNP. The province or territory decides the requirements for this program.
