The Agri-Food Immigration Pilot is now scheduled to open on May 15, 2020, and the applications will be accepted until May 14, 2023. IRCC will share the details of the program such as who qualifies and how to apply will be released closer to the launch date.
Those currently preparing their application should expect delays in receiving supporting documentation, such as proof of education and official language proficiency. Organizations that provide these services have temporarily reduced or suspended their operations in response to COVID-19.
IRCC is taking a whole-of-government approach to fighting the spread of COVID-19. The health, safety and security of Canadians, Canadian permanent residents and their families is their priority, and food security continues to be a critical part of that.
