Council Highlights June 27





RURAL RENEWAL STREAM PROGRAM APPLICATION: Council approved the submission of an application to the Government of Alberta’s Rural Renewal Immigration Stream (RRS). This program supports the attraction and retention of newcomers to rural Alberta through a community driven approach that supports local economic development needs and contributes to the growth of the community. The RRS addresses current labour needs and skills shortages in rural Alberta communities and helps newcomers settle into the community. This stream requires a community to apply to the provincial government for a community designation. Once designated, the community then works with employers to attract, recruit, and retain newcomers by sharing information on settlement supports.
