Agri-Food Immigration Pilot

Québec conditions

The federal government has recently launched the Agri-Food Immigration Pilot, which is not available in Québec.

However, a number of Québec employers who hire non-seasonal temporary foreign workers (TFW) could benefit from a two-year Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) as part of the program. Québec employers can benefit from this impact assessment (LMIA) as long as the temporary foreign worker’s job matches one of the specific codes eligible for the pilot in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) and belongs to specific industries.

Because this program is not available in Québec, it is worth noting that temporary foreign workers hired through the program could obtain permanent immigration by:

  • Submitting a permanent selection application for the Programme de l’expérience québécoise (PEQ - Québec experience program) of the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI).
  • Submitting their expression of interest form in MIFI’s Arrima portal.
