Rural & Northern Immigration Pilot Program

The New Canada immigration Program: Rural & Northern Immigration pilot is progressing towards implementation before the end of the year 2019.

The program was initially unveiled in Jan 2019, and smaller towns/communities in the selected provinces of Canada were invited to take part based on the requirements set out by the IRCC (Immigration Refugees & Citizenship Canada)

The communities approved in the new pilot program are as follows –


  • North Bay
  • Sudbury
  • Timmins
  • Sault St. Marie
  • Thunder Bay


  • Brandon
  • Rhineland/Plum Coulee /Gretna/Altona


  • Moose Jaw


  • Claresholm

British Columbia

  • Vernon
  • West Kootenay (Trail, Castlegar, Rossland, Nelson)

In this program, the employers based in the above-mentioned communities will be able to recruit applicants internationally with the help of community heads. Those applicants who get the job offer from the employer will be able to apply to the community for the endorsement letter ( support letter) to apply for the permanent residency in Canada and the applicant will also get the work permit support letter to apply for the worker visa while the PR application is being processed to facilitate the early joining of work by the applicant, if required by the employer. It is similar to the model of Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program which is currently applicable to only 4 provinces which are Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland & Labrador.

The more details about the program- any specific requirement of IRCC towards the applicant/employer is expected to release by end of the year 2019 and the program is expected to go live at the same time.
