RNIP Applicant applies for jobs posted at BrandonRNIP. All these positions are eligible for the Brandon RNIP program.

 If an applicant regularly applies for jobs posted on the Brandon RNIP website without the work and education experience, all future job applications submitted through the Brandon RNIP website will not be sent to the employers.

EDB staff review online applications for the jobs and forward applications to the employer that meet the work and education experience required for the job.

If you find a job elsewhere and would like to explore the RNIP program as a possible path to immigration and/or permanent residency, that employer must contact the Economic Development Brandon (EDB) office to ensure the position meets Brandon RNIP job eligibility.

  4. Employers screen resumes and will follow up for an interview if interested in the RNIP candidate.
  5. If successful, the RNIP applicant receives a job offer from the employer on IRCC form IMM5984
  6. RNIP Applicant with a qualifying job offer applies to the Brandon RNIP for a Community Recommendation, on IRCC form IMM 5911 and completes the Community Questionnaire.
  7. The RNIP Applicant sends EDB the Community Recommendation application documents.
  8. The Economic Development office reviews the RNIP Applicant’s Community Recommendation application against federal mandatory eligibility criteria and Community Recommendation prioritization criteria, assigning points as applicable.
  9. The RNIP Applicant will participate in an interview (either in person or video conferencing) with the Community Recommendation Panel.
 10. The Brandon RNIP Recommendation Committee meets once per month to review the Community Recommendation applications and makes one of three decisions listed below:
  1. Approves the Community Recommendation
  2. Places the Community Recommendation on hold
  3. Declines to issue a Community Recommendation

Community Recommendation applications placed on hold will remain under consideration for up to six consecutive months from the date of application. While on hold the application will be considered for Community Recommendation at each of the monthly meetings occurring during the on hold period.

At the end of six months, the application will no longer be considered. At this time, the employer can issue a new job offer, or the RNIP candidate may receive a new job offer for a different position posted on Economic Development Brandon’s website. Either of these options requires the RNIP applicant to submit an updated application for recommendation.
 11. The RNIP Applicant and employer are notified of the Brandon RNIP Recommendation Committee’s decision for Community Recommendation. The Economic Development office completes the recommendation form and provides it to the applicant.  
 12. The RNIP Applicant submits a complete permanent resident application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through the RNIP immigration program. Brandon’s Community Recommendation must accompany the application. The application for permanent residence must be submitted within 6 months of the date that appears on the Community Recommendation.
 13. IRCC confirms the permanent resident application is complete or returns the application to the applicant to provide missing documents and/or information. Once a complete application is received, IRRC assesses the permanent resident application as per their normal review process
 14. The RNIP applicant receives confirmation from IRCC that a complete Permanent Residence Application has been received. At this time, the employer and applicant can apply for a temporary foreign worker application through the normal channels. Temporary worker approval allows the RNIP applicant (and their family if desired) to come to Brandon, Manitoba, Canada and work while they are waiting for a decision on their permanent resident application.
15. The RNIP Applicant and family (if applicable), begin life in Brandon once the Brandon RNIP applicant’s temporary worker permit is approved or their permanent resident application is approved (whichever occurs first) and Canada Border Customs Agency approves the Applicant’s entry to Canada.

The employer or delegate will pick up the applicant and family at the airport, and the employer and community connect the newcomer and their family (if applicable) with services and community connections to support their settlement.
