Provincial Nomination – Farmers

Many provinces (states) of Canada also have nomination programs for Farmers. Once nominated, the Farmer applicant (and qualifying family members) is issued a permanent residence visa by the federal government through their overseas Canadian visa offices.

Farmers can also qualify under the Federal Self-employed program.

The Farmers programs generally require the Applicant to demonstrate:

  • Previous farm ownership or management experience
  • Net Worth – starting from CA$ 150,000
  • Minimum investment starting from CA$ 150,000
  • Viable Farm management plan
  • Sufficient settlement funds
  • Convincing willingness to settle in the province
  • Ability and willingness to operate a viable business

The Applicant is required to make an exploratory visit to the province, either before submitting or during processing of their nomination application. Most provinces also seek refundable deposits to ensure that the Applicant actually settles in the province. Applicant with difficulty in English, may also be asked to make a deposit, till the time they are able to demonstrate sufficient language capability.

Farmers are expected to purchase a farm in the province.

Currently, the following provinces offer nomination programs under the Farmer immigration criteria:

  • Alberta
  • Manitoba – Young Farmer
  • Saskatchewan – Farmer

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) transformed the face of Canadian immigration, after June 28, 2002. IRPA – a sweeping revision of immigration after 26 years – introduced progressive concepts and criteria to determine the profile of new immigrants to Canada, and drastically changed the ground rules for immigration practice. This had immense effect on the skill sets required for an immigration practitioner or Consultant to act as a ‘Representative’. With the introduction of IRPA, the movement towards regulation of immigration consultants also gained momentum. In conjunction, the above developments would go on to alter the topography of the Canadian immigration industry forever.

Deepak foresaw this change and promptly upgraded his education to cover the new concepts, by taking the Immigration Practitioner Post-Diploma programme at Seneca College, Toronto and clearing it with High Honors in 2003.
