Agri-Food Immigration Pilot: About the pilot

About the pilot

The Agri-Food Immigration pilot is an industry-specific program. It’s designed to help address the labour needs of the Canadian agri-food sector, particularly in meat processing and mushroom production.

The pilot aims to attract experienced, non-seasonal workers who can economically establish in Canada, and who support the ongoing labour needs of the agri-food sector.

This pilot will last for three years.

About the process

As a candidate, you will need to find a job with an employer within one of the industries and occupations listed as eligible for the pilot. If you have eligible Canadian work experience, a qualifying job offer and are successful in applying for permanent residence, you will be able to work and live in Canada as a permanent resident and work toward becoming a Canadian citizen.

Additional details on how individuals may apply for permanent residence through this pilot will be available in March 2020.
