Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot

RNIP has been established in order to focus on potentially supporting as well as strengthening smaller communities. This new program was launched in the year 2019 and emphasizes more on rural areas. Employment opportunities will be posted by the employers in participating communities. Those international skilled workers who wish to apply for the Work Permit Canada and want to work there to achieve success could opt for this program. The qualified candidates will then be recommended to the government for permanent residence by the government.

Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot

The country seeks skilled candidates due to waning birth rates and early retirement. Nearly 70% of the individuals coming from abroad settle in urban areas namely British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec managing large gaps in rural communities. These urban areas accompany the high cost of living along with providing many benefits to the immigrants.

The rural and northern immigration pilot program is an Economic Pilot program that specifically targets international people who have the capability to meet the requirements of the RNIP.
