The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program is designed to support smaller communities by providing individuals with a path to permanent residency. There are 11 participating communities. The communities assess candidates to ensure that they have the intention of living and remaining within the community, fit the economic needs of the community, and have a verified employment opportunity within the community. The community takes the step of recommending individuals to the IRCC and the IRCC approves the applications for permanent residence.
