How to Migrate to Canada as a Fisherman.

Are you looking to migrate to Canada in the fish and seafood processing industry?

Canada urgently needs skilled foreign workers to help support the high demand in this sector.

In a recent address to the nation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a $62.5 million Canadian Seafood Stabilization Fund to help protect workers in the seafood and fish industry by making the necessary adjustments to meet COVID-19 health and safety requirements. This could also be used to buy necessary equipment such as freezers and storage space to preserve food.

The fish and seafood sector is one of Canada’s highest-grossing food export industries, providing jobs to approximately 72,000 people. But the demand for fish labourers is growing as the need to salvage the struggling economy persists.

In order to help fast-track visa processing for foreign workers who want to migrate to Canada through certain in-demand sectors, the Canadian government has temporarily removed the need for Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs). A Canadian employer would normally need to advertise a job opening in Canada locally for at least 3 months before opting to employ international workers. This applies to workers in the following sectors:

  • Agricultural sectors
  • Fish and Seafood industry;
  • Meat processing sectors; and
  • Logistics industry, specifically long haul truck drivers.
  • obs in the fish and seafood processing industry have average annual salaries of $58,500 but as an experienced fisherman, you could stand to earn up to $99,450 per year. For more information visit: https://canadianvisa.org/
