On May 8th, the Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser, announced changes to the Agri-Food Pilot program that would enable more foreign nationals to obtain permanent residency in Canada. The changes will be phased in by the end of 2023.
The Agri-Food Pilot Program is open to foreign nationals working in specific industries. The eligible industries for this program are:
Occupations eligible for meat product manufacturing (NAICS 3116):
Occupations eligible for greenhouse, nursery, and floriculture production (including mushroom production) (NAICS 1114):
Occupations eligible for animal production, excluding aquaculture (NAICS 1121, 1122, 1123, 1124, and 1129):
The Agri-Food Pilot Program stands out for its relatively low language and education requirements, making it an accessible pathway for foreign workers seeking Canadian permanent residency. Key points include:
