Canadian Communities Accept Applications in Rural & Northern Imm. Pilot

The Plan is to Progress in Future

After becoming completely operational, eleven communities can receive applications for recommendation by the community in the program. The recommendation is the first step to submit the application to the government to seek permanent residence. The aim of RNIP is to bring fresh skilled workers to smaller communities through such immigration. 

The federal immigration pilot has tenure of five years and helps small communities that have an aging population and are worried with a labor shortage, facing a struggle in attracting and retaining fresh immigrants. This program is based on the communities and wants to spread the benefits of immigration.

For Inclusion in the Pilot, the Communities have to:

Here the population must be 50,000 or lesser and its location has to be 75km from the Census Metropolitan Area, or
The Remoteness Index Statistics Canada must consider it remote from large cities, and have a population of 200,000 citizens 

Ways to Get the Permanent Residence

It is important for the Candidates to 

• Meet the eligibility requirements of the federal government and the requirements specific to a community

• Find eligible jobs from an employer in a participating community-based on the list below

Such Candidates who have the job offer are eligible to submit the application for community recommendation 
Candidates recommended by the community can apply for PR.
