AINP Semi-Skilled Worker Category Food and Beverage Processing Industry

Posted in Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) offers a variety of attractive options in various categories. If you qualify with one of their streams, you will be given a nomination for that province. You will then use this nomination to obtain your permanent resident status in Canada.

One such stream of the AINP is the Semi-Skilled Worker Category. This category can be further subdivided based on the industry you are or intend to be working in. Each industry must meet the basic requirements and have additional criteria as per the industry.

Akrami & Associates and our team of highly skilled immigration professionals have much experience in helping people obtain their nominations. Contact us to find out how we can help you!

In order to be eligible for the Food and Beverage Processing sub-category, you must be in one of these eligible occupations:

  • Food and Beverage Production Worker (NOC 9617)
  • Bakery Production Worker (NOC 9617)
  • Food and Beverage Processing Equipment Cleaner (NOC 9617)
  • Industrial Butchers and Meat Cutters (NOC 9462)
  • Poultry Production Workers (NOC 9462)

As the applicant, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be currently working in Alberta on a work permit for an eligible AINP Semi-Skilled Occupation (as above)
  • Show that you have completed a minimum of high school education.
  • Demonstrate Language Proficiency
  • Complete an interview with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (AARD) staff and be able to satisfy AARD regarding your suitability for the AINP.
  • Have a total of three years of full-time work experience in your home country prior to arriving in Canada in a physically demanding job similar to that found in the food and beverage processing industry.
  • Be employed in Alberta for a minimum of six months before applying to the AINP.

When applying to this sub-category, your employer must also meet certain criteria. They must:

  • Operate an agricultural-based industrial food processing plant. In collaboration with the AINP's partner ministry, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (AARD), this program has been established to assist with labour challenges in industrial food processing plants. Retail establishments are not considered part of the food processing sector for which this category was created and are not considered eligible employers under this AINP category.
  • Have satisfactory recruitment strategies, employment policies and practices, retention and settlement in order to qualify for allocations.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.
