The CFIA considers applications from individuals who have legal status to work in Canada and does not give preference to Canadian citizens.
In your application, please identify the legal status which entitles you to work in Canada – Canadian citizenship, permanent resident status or work permit. You will be asked to show proof of this status in order to complete the security screening required for employment. Failure to provide this information will eliminate your application from further consideration.
