Canada is creating a way for people with agricultural work experience to come to the country. Learn more about it in this blog.
Recently, an announcement was made by Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, stating that Canada is ready to send out the first set of invitations for skilled agriculture and agri-food occupations through the Express Entry system.
Express Entry: Tailored for Agri-Food Professionals
Canada’s primary immigration application management system, Express Entry, has gone through some changes to target only those who have experience in the agriculture and agri-food sectors. This includes professions such as:
- Agricultural Service Contractors
- Farm Supervisors
- Retail And Wholesale Butchers
The goal is to cater to the increasing demand for skilled workers in this sector and enhance the country’s farming and food processing operations.
A Boost for Canadian Immigration and Agriculture
Along with elevating its Express Entry system, Canada is also pushing its commitment to the Agri-Food Pilot. The goal is to support the economy by attracting global talent and addressing the growing need for agriculture and agri-food workers in the country. As Canada opens doors for specific sectors, it showcases their approach to meeting the demands of the economy and workforce.
