Brandon, MB kick starts accepting applications under Canada’s all new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program in the five-year pilot. As a community-driven program, the RNIP is designed to encourage rural migration in Canada by inviting talented foreign workers seeking to live and work in one of the participating rural communities in Canada.
Brandon is the second largest city situated in the province of Manitoba to start accepting applications for the RNIP, following the Sault St. Marie in Ontario and Altona/Rhineland in Manitoba. A number of other participating communities are also expected to start their application process later in 2020.
There is a total of 11 communities to participate in the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Project (RNIPP) through which thousands of migrants are expected to arrive in Canada over the next few years. Once all these 11 participating communities will start receiving applications under the RNIP immigration pathways, the selected applicants can then apply to the federal government to obtain a permanent residency status in Canada.
