Agri-Food Immigration Pilot


The Agri-Food Immigration Pilot helps address the labour needs of the Canadian agri-food sector by testing a new industry-specific approach.


The pilot is designed to

  • help address the labor needs of the Canadian agri-food sector, particularly in year-round mushroom and greenhouse crop production, meat processing, and livestock raising industries, and

  • attract experienced, non-seasonal workers who can settle in Canada


This pilot will run until May 2023.

What is important about this pilot is that a job offer must be from one of the industries and occupations listed as eligible for the pilot. This pilot will allow application for the PR only to those, who already have Canadian experience.
