Canada is the second-largest country on the world map, and with metropolitan cities, there are many small villages and communities. The Canada northern and rural immigration program aims to bring foreign workers and skilled men to small far-from-city communities. These small communities have most of the old population and deficiency of labour to perform daily chores. This five-year program helps get skilled foreign workers interested in immigration programs who are actively looking for job opportunities.
Also known as RNIP, this initiative helps immigrants acquire permanent residency status and the job post in any enlisted communities.
Eleven communities are part of this pilot, and they all belong to different provinces of Canada.
What is the Process of Applying for the PNIP?
- The first step starts when the applicant gets a legit job offer from any enlisted communities employer.
- The second step is where the applicant seeks approval from the community.
- The community looks at the applicant profile and selects him only he is the perfect match.
- If his recommendation gets approved, after that, he can file an application for permanent residency to IRCC.
- The registered communities have their recommendations and requirements. Every year the recommendations get updated considering the need for distinct skills and workers.
- After the application submission, the applicant will undergo a thorough background check according to the RNIP eligibility criteria.
- The applicant must meet all communital and federal entry requirements.
- The PR will be released within a few weeks if he meets the requirements.
- The final step is the applicant’s migration to that community and his family. The community helps them in settling down.
