Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP)

OR CALL +1 (647) 494-7977

The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) program has extended the community recommendation period until July 31, 2024, providing candidates an opportunity to submit complete permanent residence applications until August 31, 2024.

To be eligible, candidates must secure a genuine job offer in one of the participating communities. The job offered must align with specific requirements:

  • It must be located within the community, full-time, non-seasonal, and permanent.
  • The wage should meet or exceed the minimum set by the Job Bank for the job offer’s National Occupational Classification (NOC).
  • The job offer must match the candidate’s skill level based on NOC.

Each participating community has its own recommendation process, details of which can be found on their respective websites. When applying, candidates are required to submit supporting documents, and it’s crucial to provide copies, not originals.

The application process became mandatory online starting September 23, 2022. Candidates may need to provide biometrics (fingerprints and photo) as part of the process. Detailed instruction guides are available, with specific forms required based on the date of community recommendation application.

Employers and designated Economic Development Organizations also play a role in the application process. Employers must fill out forms like IMM 5984, and organizations must provide a recommendation through form IMM 0112.

Biometrics, fees, and submission are integral components of the application process. Candidates must ensure all questions are answered, the application is electronically signed, and supporting documents are uploaded before submission.

Additionally, candidates have the option to apply for an optional 1-year work permit, allowing them to work while their permanent residence application is processed. Spouses or common-law partners can also apply for an open work permit.

It is essential to carefully follow the guidelines to avoid any application refusals. The use of a representative is permitted, with specific guidelines to be adhered to, and there are detailed specifications for photo submissions and guidance for addressing technical issues during the application process.

RNIP is a Canadian immigration program designed to address labor market needs in rural and northern communities by allowing eligible candidates to apply for permanent residence with a job offer from a participating community.

To be eligible, you need a genuine job offer in a participating community, meet specific job requirements, have the required work experience, education, language proficiency, and meet community-specific criteria.

Community recommendation is a crucial step in the RNIP process. It signifies that a designated Economic Development Organization in a participating community has endorsed your job offer and believes you will integrate well into the community.

Yes, you can apply from both within and outside Canada. However, you need to meet all eligibility requirements, including having a valid job offer from a participating community.

Language requirements vary based on the National Occupational Classification (NOC) category. NOC 0 and A require CLB/NCLC 6, NOC B requires CLB/NCLC 5, and NOC C and D require CLB/NCLC 4.

The validity of community recommendation is determined by the participating community, and it is recommended to check with the specific community for their timeline.

Yes, your spouse or common-law partner and dependent children can accompany you. They may also be eligible for open work permits.

Yes, the wage offered must meet or exceed the Job Bank’s minimum wage for the specific National Occupational Classification (NOC) of the job.

Yes, eligible candidates with a job offer can apply for a 1-year work permit, allowing them to work while their permanent residence application is processed.

It is essential to submit your permanent residence application before the community recommendation expires. If it expires, you may need to reapply or consult with the community for guidance.
