Rural And Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP)

Rural And Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP)

About The Rural And Northern Immigration Pilot In Manitoba

The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) is community-driven and was developed to help spread economic immigration to smaller sized communities throughout provinces in Canada. This pilot program allows a route for permanent residence for foreign skilled employees who want to work and live in one of the participating communities in the program.

Candidates would need to find a job within one of the participating communities in the program. A candidate may live and work in one of the communities if they are recommended by the community and successfully apply for permanent residency. If the candidate received an endorsement from a community and has successfully applied for permanent residency at the community, they are then able to live and work in that community.
