Program delivery update: Launch of the new Agri-Food Immigration Pilot (AFIP) Program

 

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/updates/2020-agri-food.html

 

A new 3-year pilot program has been put in place through the Ministerial Instructions Respecting the Agri-Food Immigration Class published in the Canada Gazette on August 31, 2019. The Agri-Food Immigration Pilot (AFIP) Program is designed to help address the labour needs of the Canadian agri-food sector, particularly in the year-round mushroom and greenhouse crop production, meat processing and livestock raising industries, and to attract experienced, non-seasonal workers who can settle in Canada. The pilot will run until May 14, 2023.

The pilot introduces 2 new criteria:

  • an industry-specific approach based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)
  • a new level of education

In addition, there is a maximum number of complete applications processed for each eligible occupation (National Occupational Classification).

Lolita Rangel RCIC

My journey in Canada started in 2005 when I obtained a Study Permit and moved to Kamloops, BC to enroll in the Bachelor of Journalism and Public Relations program at Thompson Rivers University. The next four years of my life were spent not only getting a top education, but also getting to know life long friends.

 

After graduating and obtaining a Canadian Work Visa, I was honoured to work at the Mexican Consulate in Vancouver. I worked for 7 years for the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program as a Liaison Officer between the agricultural employers and the Mexican workers

 

I am now a Canadian Citizen and have furthered my education by taking the CILPP program at the University of British Columbian and I am now a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant with ICCRC. My goal is to continue to provide access to opportunities in Canada for all those who wish to work, study or move to this great country.
