Chinese: The fastest immigration pilot in Canada’s history
North York’s daily source, superlife.ca, reports:
Canada is committed to attracting the best talents from around the world to fill in skill gaps, promote local economic development and create and support middle-class employment in communities across the country in order to benefit all Canadians. Canada is currently launching a new three-year pilot program of economic immigration to fill the labour shortage in the agri-food industry, particularly in meat processing and mushroom cultivation, and to help achieve Canada’s ambitious export targets. The new pilot aims to attract and retain workers by providing them with the opportunity to become permanent residents. "Immigration helps to grow the local economy and create jobs for Canadians," Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, said. "This pilot is another example." (15/07/19)
London's (Ontario) daily source, londonchinese.ca, adds:
Hussen said agriculture is a major contributor to Canada’s economic growth, which supports one-eighth of the jobs across Canada. So, as long as a person works in one of the specified jobs in the agriculture industry for at least a year, they can easily apply for permanent residence. Also, the IELTS requirement is only set at a score of four points, making the “agri-food immigration pilot” the fastest immigration pilot in Canada’s history. (15/07/19)
