Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Takes Off

News release

Eleven communities to attract newcomers to support middle-class jobs

June 14, 2019—Sault Ste. Marie, ON — Eleven rural and northern communities have been selected as part of the new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to invite newcomers to make these communities their forever homes.
As the Canadian population ages and the birth rate declines, rural Canada’s workforce has seen a significant decrease in available workers. This pilot will help attract people that are needed to drive economic growth and help support middle-class jobs in these communities.
The participating rural and northern communities will have access to a range of supports to test this new innovative, community-driven model that will help fill labour gaps. 
The selected communities are: 
Thunder Bay (ON), Sault Ste. Marie (ON), Sudbury (ON), Timmins (ON), North Bay (ON), 
Gretna-Rhineland-Altona-Plum Coulee (MB), Brandon (MB), 
Moose Jaw (SK), 
Claresholm (AB), 
West Kootenay (BC), and Vernon (BC). 
The participating communities were selected as a representative sample of the regions across Canada to assist in laying out the blueprint for the rest of the country.
To complement the Rural and Northern Pilot, Canada is also working with the territories to address the unique immigration needs in Canada’s North.
Canada is committed to attracting the best talent around the world to fill skill shortages and drive local economies in rural Canada that will benefit all Canadians.

  5. What you published made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a killer title? I mean, I
    don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a title
    to possibly get a person's attention? I mean "Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Takes Off" is a little boring.

    You might look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
