IRCC announces New Immigration Pilot for Rural Communities

Dear future neighbour,

Canada’s Immigration Minister, Marc Miller, on Wednesday March 6, 2024, announced new Canada immigration pilots for rural and francophone minority communities. This Rural Community Immigration Pilot will be fully in effect by fall 2024.

The immigration minister also stated the importance of the RNIP (Rural Northern Immigration Pilot) and its success.

As of the end of January, the minister emphasized that 5,158 newcomers obtained permanent residency through this pathway, with approximately 87% of respondents from surveys indicating that they remained in these communities.

IRCC is working towards adding more communities to be included in this program with the goal to guarantee that programs that alleviate labour shortages and assist local businesses in finding the labour they require will still be available in rural regions.

The programs will offer pathways to permanent residence for new comers who would want to settle down in these rural communities permanently and are also able to meet their urgent labour shortages. The francophone program also aims to ensure the development of francophone minority towns and increase the number of French speaking immigrants  settling in these communities outside of Quebec.

The IRCC will commence the community application process this spring for the communities participating in the pilots. Further details will be provided in the months ahead.
