RNIP allotment

The Government of Canada increased the RNIP allotment of foreign nationals allowed to immigrate to Sudbury in northern Ontario through the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) by 58.4% last week to 515 from 325. The RNIP is a five-year program that recruits skilled immigrants to work in smaller communities with aging populations and labor shortages. The program directly addresses gaps and challenges, such as labor shortages, and drives economic prosperity for communities in ways that will have a generational impact. 

Sudbury MP Viviane Lapointe and Sudbury Mayor Paul Lefebvre have expressed their support and appreciation for the program, noting how it benefits local employers and provides a valuable pathway for newcomers to grow their careers in Northern Ontario
