Information for
Businesses in the Claresholm Area

How can my business participate?

Claresholm is currently developing employer-criteria for local employers wanting to participate in the RNIP. It is anticipated that criteria will be finalized in January 2020, and the Economic Development Committee we will begin accepting applications in February 2020. Please contact the Town of Claresholm Economic Development Officer at to find out more about how your business can participate.

What is the process?

Applicants who meet the Federal Eligibility Criteria will have to obtain a full-time job offer from a local employer, before they can apply for a recommendation from the Claresholm Economic Development Committee. The Town of Claresholm will be launching an employment portal in February 2020 that will assist in matching newcomers with job opportunities in
Claresholm. View RNIP Process Map
