RNIP is officially started in five communities
On February 11, 2020, the fifth rural community joined the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP). The pilot was launched in Claresholm, AB. The RNIP in this community was supposed to open January 1, 2020, but due to some organizational delays, Claresholm began to accept applications only now. On February 14, 2020, the Claresholm RNIP Portal was opened so applicants can create a profile. At the same time, at the moment, there are no job postings there. The main criteria to participate in the pilot is to obtain a job offer from the local employer. Claresholm plans to issue a maximum of twenty recommendations during the first year of the pilot. The four other communities where RNIP has begun are Vernon, BC, Sault Ste-Marie, ON, Brandon, MB; and Altona/Rhineland, MB.
