Public Policy on Work Experience Eligibility Requirement for the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot
To continue leveraging the pilot to address local labour shortages and support the Government of Canada’s objective to ensure economic resilience as part of its action on COVID-19, this public policy will allow candidates to meet the work experience requirement where they have accumulated one full year of work experience in the three years preceding their application for permanent residence, regardless of whether this work experience was continuous or not. It will also further leverage the local expertise of program partners in identifying candidates who are a strong fit for their labour and economic development needs
