UFCW Canada is proud to be the union defending Canada's migrant workers. For decades, we have been leading the fight to ensure that migrant workers have the same opportunities and rights as every worker in Canada. The industries we representinvolve a growing number of migrant workers as Canada's labour force changes, and UFCW Canada is here to advocate for every one of our migrant members.

If you are a UFCW member in Canada on a Temporary Foreign Worker permit, your union can help you build your life in Canada with your family.
UFCW representatives are here to help you navigate through the permanent residency process, and help you find the pathway that is right for you.
Workers in the agricultural and food industries can obtain permanent residency through several routes, whether it is through the Federal Government’s Agri-Food Pilot, or the Quebec food worker pilot program, or one of the many Provincial Nominee Programs.
Your union can help your find a pathway to permanent residency that fits your experience.
