Canada has revealed to the public its plans to design a three-year immigration pilot with the aim of boosting the nation's Agri-food sector. On the 19th of March during the 2019 budget, the Canadian Government made it clear that the three-year immigration pilot was part of the plan towards meeting the country's targeted export level, and towards attracting and retaining full-time agricultural workers who are not limited by changes in seasons. The Government added that the program would have a pathway through which they can obtain permanent residence. The Government is solidly supported by the Canadian Meat Council (CMC) in its immigration pilot plans. According to the CMC, the association appealed for 2,750 immigration slots to fill the vacancies available in positions like meat Packers, processors and the suppliers of equipment. In an Economic Strategy Table for Canada's Agri-food sector which was printed in September 2018, the need to handle the alarming issues following the labor market needs in the agricultural sector is urgent. It, therefore, seeks to use the country's temporary foreign worker and Permanent immigration programs to bring in workers from different skill levels.
