Agricultural worker from Mexico and the Caribbean countries under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SAWP)

You must follow these two steps.

2 important steps

  1. You must find an employer in Québec who wishes to hire you temporarily.

    Your future employer will have to take certain steps. For more information, refer to the page on recruiting farm workers.
  1. If the application submitted by your employer is accepted by Employment and Social Development Canada and Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion, you must apply for a work permit from the Government of Canada. For more information, visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website.

    If applicable, you (and each member of your family) must meet the Government of Canada’s health and safety requirements for a work permit. When a medical examination is required, it must be performed by a physician designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, and fees are applicable.

    Note: You must ensure that you have the letter of authorization issued by the Canadian visa office before purchasing your airline ticket. The work permit is issued to foreign workers when they present the letter of authorization upon arrival at the point of entry into Canada.
