Rural & Northern Immigration Pilot

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship operate the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) to boost the economy and demography of Canada’s smaller communities. The community-drive immigration pilot helps smaller communities benefit from economic immigration by allowing foreign-skilled workers and international students to secure jobs and settle by becoming permanent residents.

Candidates meeting standard legibility requirements can find jobs and settle in the following communities:

  • Altona/ Rhineland
  • Brandon 
  • Claresholm
  • Moose Jaw
  • North Bay
  • Sault Ste. Marie
  • Sudbury
  • Timmins
  • Vernon
  • West Kootenay 

Candidates living in urban areas of Canada and struggling to secure permanent residency status can settle in smaller communities of northern and rural Canada by securing a permanent job.
