The Rural Community Immigration Pilot, slated to launch in autumn 2024, aims to address labour shortages and bolster local businesses in rural areas. It offers pathways to permanent residency for newcomers willing to reside in these communities long-term and contribute to vital sectors experiencing shortages.

Since its inception, the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) has facilitated nearly 4.6K newcomers in obtaining permanent residence by addressing labour gaps in sectors such as healthcare, accommodation, food services, retail, and manufacturing. This initiative has been pivotal in supporting the economic growth of rural communities.

Building on the RNIP’s achievements and aligning with the Francophone Immigration Policy, IRCC will introduce the Francophone Community Immigration Pilot in fall 2024.

This program aims to increase French-speaking newcomers settling in Francophone minority communities outside Quebec. By fostering economic development and bolstering demographic presence, it aims to revitalize these communities.

Both pilots reflect Canada’s commitment to inclusive growth and regional development. By targeting specific challenges faced by rural and Francophone communities, these initiatives seek to harness the potential of immigration to drive economic prosperity and cultural vitality across the nation.
