Canada Invites 600 for PR in Agriculture and Agri Food Occupations

Canada Invites 600 for PR in Agriculture and Agri Food Occupations On September 28th, 2023, the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Marc Miller, took action by issuing some important rules for the Express Entry system. These rules were all about inviting people to apply for permanent residence in Canada. But this time, the focus was on folks who work in Agriculture and Agri-Food Occupations. It’s a big deal because it’s the first time they’ve done this kind of invite. They gave the green light to 600 people to apply for jobs related to farming and food. To be one of the lucky ones, you had to have a score of at least 354 on a special test. Canada is really keen on having skilled workers in the farming and food industry.

Now, let’s talk about what’s been happening this week in Canada. They’ve already invited people twice before this. On Monday, they invited 500 folks who are good at speaking French. And on Sunday, a whopping 3,000 people got invited to come work in Canada for various jobs. But for that invitation, you needed a higher score, at least 504. So, if you know your stuff when it comes to farming and food, Canada might be waving the “Come Work Here” flag for you!

Here are the nitty-gritty details of that draw:
