Immigrants and the Food and Beverage Industry in Canada


The food and beverage industry in Canada relies on immigrants to function and grow. Greater than one in four food and beverage jobs in Canada is filled by immigrants.

More than half of business owners in this industry in Canada are immigrants who employ others in their business. The top provinces for business owners in the food and beverage industry are the Northwest Territories, British Columbia, Ontario, and Alberta.

Canada continues to be a place to thrive for immigrant owners and workers in the food and beverage industry. This can be a pathway to Permanent Residence in Canada.
