Canadian immigration has launched a new pilot program to provide agricultural workers with permanent residence. This program is designed to address current and future labor shortages in agriculture such as meat processing, mushroom and greenhouse production, and animal husbandry.
Temporary agency workers who work in these areas can apply for permanent residence with their families.
The professions and industries include the production of meat products (retail butchers, industrial butchers, farm managers and specialized ranchers, workers in food processing), greenhouse, mushroom, tree nursery and floriculture production (managers and specialized livestock farmers, general agricultural workers, harvesters) and animal production without aquaculture (Manager and specialized livestock farmer, general agricultural worker).
The Canadian agricultural industry is estimated to create 1 in 8 jobs in Canada, and in 2019 this sector exported more than $ 67 billion overseas. Therefore, it is important for Canada to keep this talented workforce and enable them to stay in Canada so that they can continue to help our farmers and processors. If you would like to learn more about this program or other streams, please send us an email. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
