Rural Renewal Stream

Home 9 Rural Renewal Stream

Alberta’s Rural Renewal Stream 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 Rural Renewal Stream empowers rural communities, such as Innisfail, to recruit and retain foreign nationals to live, work and settle in their communities.

Interested candidates with an endorsement of candidate letter from the Town of Innisfail can apply using the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program portal
