Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship – Ahmed Hussen has stated that “By creating an immigration pilot aimed at rural and northern communities, we’re looking to ensure that the benefits of immigration are shared across the country.” Candidates with the eligibility to participate in the pilot program have to coordinate with local economic development organizations for submitting their applications by March 2019. And, the candidates who will be selected are announced possibly during the spring of the year.

However, the selected communities for the Rural and Northern Pilot Program have to provide their available employment opportunities and involve in linking the jobs for the Canada immigration candidates. And, the information for the immigration pilot program will be announced and informed in the later point of time.
