11 northern and rural communities have now been chosen to participate in the new Northern and Rural Immigration Pilot in Canada. They can now invite immigrants to settle as PR Visa holders.
The rate of birth in Canada is declining while the population is also aging. As a result, the workforce in rural Canada is witnessing a crucial decline in the availability of workers.
The new Immigration Pilot will assist in attracting the workers required to propel the growth of the economy. They will also assist in supporting mid-level occupations in the communities, as quoted by the CIC News.
The communities in northern and rural Canada that are participating in the Immigration Pilot will have the right to use wide supports. This is for testing this latest model that is driven by community assisting in filing labour gaps. The communities that are chosen for the pilot are:
• (BC) Vernon
• (ON) Sudbury
• (ON) Thunder Bay
• (ON) Timmins
• (MB) Brandon
• (MB) Coulee Plum-Rhineland-Altona-Gretna
• (SK) Moose Jaw
• (AB) Claresholm
• (ON) North Bay
• (BC) West Kootenay
• (ON) Sault Ste. Marie
The communities that have been selected for participation in the Immigration Pilot are a representative model of Canadian regions. This is to help in outlining the design for the rest of Canada.
Canada is as well collaborating with the regions for addressing the exclusive immigration requirement in Northern Canada. This is to complement the new Northern and Rural Immigration Pilot in Canada. It is committed to attracting the best global talents for filling skill shortages. This is also for the growth of local economies in countryside areas that will help all residents in Canada.
The Canadian Government will work throughout the summer with the chosen communities. This is to position then for identifying immigrants for PR Visa as quick as fall 2019. The communities will be liable for recruiting candidates and endorsing them for Canada PR Visa.
New immigrants are likely to begin to enter Canada through the latest Immigration Pilot by 2020.
Communities collaborated with organizations for local development for submitting applications. This showed the manner in which they fulfilled the criteria for eligibility by 11 March 2019.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot was started in 2017 with the same objectives for promoting the growth of rural areas in Canada. This was under the Atlantic Growth Strategy.
More than 4 million Canadians are employed by rural communities. They also account for nearly 30% of the GDP of Canada.
