Canada has launched a new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to help bring new skilled worker immigrants to smaller communities. This Pilot was developed to help spread the benefits of economic immigration to smaller communities throughout Canada that are contending with ageing populations and labour shortages
The Government of Canada will work with local communities to:
– use immigration to help meet local labour market needs and support regional economic development;
– test a new pathway to permanent residence in rural Canada for skilled foreign nationals at various skill levels;
– create welcoming environments that encourage and help new immigrants to stay in their new communities;
This community-driven Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot will facilitate permanent residence for foreign workers of various skill levels in eligible communities in the following provinces and territories:
The new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot will operate alongside Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program. Communities selected will be announced in spring 2019, with the identification of new permanent resident candidates to start in summer 2019.
