The Canadian Government implemented two new Agri-Food Pilot amendments

On August 18, 2023, the Government of Canada implemented two changes to the Agri-Food Pilot (AFP), providing more opportunities for workers and their families to apply for permanent residency. First, family members of all AFP participants can now apply for open work permits. Second, Canada started accepting union reference letters instead of employer reference letters to confirm an applicant’s work experience. The AFP launched as a 3-year pilot in 2020, was extended until May 14, 2025. To qualify for permanent residency, applicants need Canadian work experience in eligible industries and occupations, a full-time, non-seasonal job offer from a Canadian employer in an eligible sector and occupation (outside Quebec), language and educational requirements, and settlement funds (if applicable).
