Immigration (Rural Renewal Stream)

Rural Renewal Stream

What is the RRS?

The Rural Renewal Stream offers eligible workers an opportunity to immigrate to the STEP (St. Paul and Elk Point) Region* with the formal support of the municipalities and endorsement from the STEP Economic Development Alliance. The program will be used to attract and retain newcomers and support employers to fill vacancies. This will support workforce development by helping employers meet labour demands, expand skilled workforce and support community and economic growth.

* comprised of the County of St. Paul, Town of St. Paul, Town of Elk Point, and
Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay
