The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot is a program aimed at driving the economy of smaller communities by enticing skilled foreign workers to immigrate to smaller cities in Canada. It was recently announced that the program has been extended to 2021, giving those who want to live and work in Canada more of an opportunity to join one of the participating communities. There are 9 communities participating in the program:

Ontario

  • Thunder Bay
  • Sault Ste. Marie
  • Sudbury
  • Timmins
  • North Bay

Manitoba

  • Altona/Rhineland
  • Brandon

Saskatchewan

  • Moose Jaw

Alberta

  • Claresholm

British Columbia

  • West Kootenay(Trail, Castlegar. Rossland, Nelson)
  • Vernon
This program is part of Justin Trudeau’s initiative to invite 1.3 million skilled workers into Canada’s workforce to counter the waning labour force by 2021 and application will be opening shortly so keep an eye out as spots will be filling up fast.

So Why Migrate To These Regions in Canada?

Besides the many benefits that Canada offers to all of their Citizens, such as free public healthcare and schooling, there are plenty of lucrative job opportunities in smaller cities. In fact, you are more likely to find a job opportunity in a smaller city than in the already crowded main cities that have become so popular among immigrants wanting to live and work in Canada. With 78 per cent of Canada’s youth and most new arrivals opting to migrate to urban cities such as Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, the idea of living in a smaller city, like Thunder Bay or West Kootenay may seem less appealing. But this is simply not the case. Canada not only has a strong economy but a large job market with salary expectations ranging anywhere from $22 per hour as a truck driver to $64 as an IT Specialist. It has a relatively low crime rate and is ranked 8th on the safest and most dangerous countries ranking. Although certain areas in the North are subject to harsh winters and dry summers, it is a small price to pay to live in the midst of unparalleled natural beauty. Newcomers are also integrated into the community through settlement services, including accommodation, healthcare, public transportation and educational services. Not sold yet? Let's have a look at what these regions have to offer in terms of employment. Below are some of the top jobs that are currently in demand in each province:

Ontario

  • Firefighters
  • Managers
  • Real estate managers

British Columbia

  • IT managers
  • IT consultants
  • Software engineers

Alberta

  • Physicians
  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Educators

Manitoba

  • Business and Finance occupations

  • Long Haul Truck Drivers
