With this North Bay, Ontario’s RNIP program, the total number of communities in Canada to unveil RNIP program criteria is 11. Twelve communities are participating in the pilot project. The only community that has not launched its program in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. North Bay is a city of over 50,000 people. It is a three-hour drive north of Toronto.
Its economy is diverse and includes strong health, mining, and tourism sectors. With several sites of post-secondary institutions in North Bay, Education is also an important element.
The RNIP is a new initiative by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to partner with communities outside of major population centers in Canada to attract the immigrants who will best contribute to each community.
Some requirements apply to all communities and people who immigrate to them. Of these, applicants have the following eligibility criteria:
The job offer must be of the same skill level, either a higher level or a lower level than the National Occupational Classification (NOC) which corresponds to the candidates’ work experience.
How, then, will a person get a community referral from North Bay that will allow them to apply for permanent Canadian residency? The better the knowledge of one of Canada’s official languages, the better. The experience of living in rural or northern communities is also helpful.
Family or friendship ties with someone already living in North Bay are also beneficial. Someone who has lived or currently lives in North Bay will earn additional points.
If someone has attended a post-secondary institution in North Bay, that experience will work in their favor. Having an occupation that North Bay considers to be in demand will also improve its demand. North Bay has more information about applying to RNIP on its web page.
