Our Team

Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Program

Thank you for your interest in the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program.  The City of North Bay, together with its partners, is excited to be a host community for this initiative. 

At this time, we are still unable to accept applications. To ensure you are on the list to receive updates on the program, please email patricia@nbdcc.ca.

Please note, we do not accept any telephone inquiries. 

We recognize that the RNIP for North Bay and District was to start January 1, 2020. Once the Memorandum of Understanding is signed with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), we will send out requests to candidates that are currently in our region and already working for employers, that meet all the requirements set out by IRCC and the Community.

This website is NOT accepting applications to the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program.
