Big Agri-Food Pilot Changes Coming to Canada in February 2024!

  • On February 10, 2024, Canada’s Agri-Food Pilot made two changes to help people in agriculture gain permanent residency. These adjustments impact how individuals secure their permanent residency status in the program.
  • if you’re applying for something in Canada, and you already live there, you have a choice. You can either show that you have a job offer related to your application, or you can prove that you meet the educational requirement they’re looking for. It’s up to you, whichever one works better for your situation.
  • Canada is now recognizing work experience gained through open work permits for foreign workers. This helps those in more vulnerable situations, making their experience count in the immigration process.
