Punjab farmers seek Canada bonanza

Many farms in Canada are being abandoned because their owners are too old and the next generation has switched careers or migrated to the cities.
"So they need outsiders to come in and do the job. We are one of the countries providing it," he adds.
So with an investment of 150,000 Canadian dollars ($130,000), a farmer in Punjab can buy a farm in Canada.

The Canadian High Commission in Delhi is one of the country's biggest missions. Only the embassy in China generates more immigrant visas.
On most days you can spot a crowd of turbaned Punjabi men squatting on the lawns outside it, waiting to be called in for a visa interview.
Trudy Kerningham heads the immigration section at the commission and sheds light on what they can expect.
"If someone is going to purchase a farm in Canada, have they done their research? Do they have the skills, the money? Do they understand the whole management of a Canadian farm? While they may be very experienced in Punjab, does that translate to managing a farm in Canada?"
