About the pilot
The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot is a community-driven program. It is designed to spread the benefits of economic immigration to smaller communities by creating a path to permanent residence for skilled foreign workers who want to work and live in one of the participating communities.
About the process
There are 4 steps to applying for permanent residence under this pilot.
- Check that you meet both the IRCC eligibility requirements and the community-specific requirements.
- Find an eligible job with an employer in one of the participating communities.
- Once you have a job offer, submit your application for recommendation to the community. If a community recommends you, apply for permanent residence.
Each community will also have its own:
- additional eligibility requirements
- job search process
- community recommendation application process
