Sudbury – one of three Ontario communities that recently launched their Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) program, held it’s first-ever draw on April 23.
A total of six eligible candidates who had a minimum score of at least 280 received invites to apply for a community recommendation for Canadian permanent residence.
Sudbury is the largest city in Northern Ontario. Around 165,000 people inhibit this city. The local economy is booming & lead by finance, mining, tourism and other service industries. The city is also home to Laurentian University and Cambrian College.
Sudbury launched its RNIP program on March 23, 2020. The program is designed for foreigner workers and their families who want to settle in Sudbury. In order to apply, candidates need to secure an offer of employment in an eligible occupation in an eligible industry.
Each of the 11 communities participating in the RNIP has their own method of selecting immigration candidates. However, like the federal Express Entry system and many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), Sudbury uses a points-based system to select candidates.
In order to be eligible to apply under Sudbury RNIP, the first step is to meet the eligibility requirements for the federal government. Then candidates need to make sure that they fulfil the minimum point requirements on the RNIP Candidate Assessment form, which is 115 points for candidates with a spouse or common-law partner and 85 for single applicants.
Unlike the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) used by the federal Express Entry system, the Sudbury RNIP awards more points to candidates who age between 30 to 45 years and then selects the highest-ranking candidates from the pool of applicants and invites them to apply for a community recommendation.
A tie-breaking rule was applied by Sudbury RNIP in this draw and the cut-off date & time used was April 15 at 4:28 p.m. local time, meaning candidates who had submitted their application before this time & date received invite.
In spite of Canada’s temporary travel restrictions in place to curb the spread of coronavirus pandemic, the Sudbury RNIP is still accepting applications from foreign workers with job offers in the mining supply, services sector and the tourism sector.
