Find Farmwork

Every year, Canadian farmers rely on seasonal workers to help grow the food that eventually reaches our plate. Typically, the majority of these workers are temporary foreign workers, but with the uncertainty of travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, famers may not be able to get all the labourers they need in the coming seasons.

Every farm operation has different labour needs. Hiring local workers, especially those with applicable skills, can assist many farmers to get the help they need while boosting the local economy. Particularly for those currently out of work or seeking seasonal employment, there are many opportunities on Canada’s farms.
