Canada introduces new pilots for rural and Francophone communities

On March 6, 2024, Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced new immigration pilots for rural and Francophone minority communities. These include the Rural Community Immigration Pilot and the Francophone Community Immigration Pilot, launching in the fall of 2024. The rural pilot aims to address labour shortages in smaller communities, offering permanent residence pathways for newcomers. The Francophone pilot, based on the RNIP's success, will increase the number of French-speaking newcomers in Francophone communities outside Quebec, aiding their economic development and demographic growth. The community application process opens this spring, with more details to follow.
