An Arranged Employment Offer (AEO) refers to a job offer that has been pre-approved by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) or a provincial/territorial government. It is a crucial component of certain immigration programs in Canada, such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The AEO demonstrates that the applicant has secured a genuine job offer from a Canadian employer, which can positively impact their immigration application by providing additional points or meeting eligibility requirements.
