How can candidates apply for PR through RNIP?

It is very easy to apply for Canadian permanent residency through the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program. The program assists individuals to gain residency by first obtaining recommendation from a participating community in the program. If you want to settle in a rural community of Canada, get recommended by a participating rural community and then apply for residency. 

Currently, these are the participating communities in RNIP across Canada:

  • North Bay, Ontario
  • Sudbury, Ontario
  • Timmins, Ontario
  • Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
  • Thunder Bay, Ontario
  • Brandon, Manitoba
  • Altona/Rhineland, Manitoba
  • Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
  • Claresholm, Alberta
  • Vernon, British Columbia
  • West Kootenay (Trail, Castlegar, Rossland, Nelson), British Columbia

To be recommended by a community, make sure that you meet the eligibility requirements of both the program and the community-specific requirements. After that, find a job with an employer in that community and then submit a request to get recommended by it. When you get recommended, you may apply for Canadian PR.
