1.    Agri-Food Immigration Pilot

The Agri-Food Immigration Pilot will test a new, industry-specific approach to help address the labour needs of the Canadian agri-food sector, particularly in meat processing and mushroom production.

While immigration in the agricultural sector is largely based on seasonal workers, this pilot aims to enhance the benefits of economic immigration to the agri-food sector by testing a new pathway to permanent residence.

The pilot will seek to attract experienced, non-seasonal workers who can economically establish in Canada, and who support the ongoing labour needs of the agri-food sector.

In particular, the pilot will focus on attracting retail butchers, industrial butchers, food processing labourers, harvesting labourers, general farm workers, and farm supervisors and specialized livestock workers.

On June 18, 2019, the Government approved the Trans Mountain Expansion Project and made the commitment that every dollar it earns from the Project will be invested in Canada’s clean energy transition.

At the same time, a number of Indigenous communities have expressed interest in participating economically in the Project—such as through equity and revenue sharing—which the Government has said can be an important step on the path toward reconciliation.
