RURAL AND NORTHERN PROGRAM

Couple Working Together

Easier to become permanent resident in small communities

The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot is a community-driven program.

It’s 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.

WHAT'S THE PROCEDURE?

 


There are 4 steps to applying for permanent residence under this pilot.

1- Check that you meet both:
IRCC eligibility requirements
The community-specific requirements.


2- Find an eligible job with an employer in one of the participating communities.


3- Once you have a job offer, submit your application for recommendation to the community.


4- 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
