The Agri-Food Immigration Pilot is a three-year pilot that offers a pathway for agricultural workers to gain permanent residency in Canada. It has started on May 15, 2020 and will end on May 14, 2023. This pilot aims to fill labour shortages in the agriculture sector specially in the meat processing industry, mushroom and greenhouse crop production as well as livestock industries.
Each year, a maximum of 2,750 primary candidates and their families will be admitted. Over the course of the pilot’s three years, this translates to a total of 16,500 potential new permanent citizens.
