North Bay business leaders want the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to be permanent

The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) has been successful and popular, leading the North Bay & District Chamber of Commerce (NBDCC) to call for it to become a permanent immigration program. The RNIP has been implemented in five Northern Ontario communities, and only in North Bay, over 150 employers participated and over 300 community recommendations for newcomers were issued. Timmins and Sudbury have also expressed their support for RNIP. In Thunder Bay, RNIP generated $11.6 million in wages for the local economy and created 321 jobs in just one year.
