In a Canadian Federation of Agriculture report, labour issues are identified as the number one priority facing the Canadian agriculture industry today. Your help is needed to determine how much farm work is done by family members and how much is done by employees? What work is done by domestic and or foreign workers? Is there a growing reliance on hiring employees to support farm operations? What labour challenges are facing producers today?
The Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) has launched a Labour Market Information (LMI) research survey to examine Canada’s agricultural workforce from every commodity and region. The survey must achieve a minimum of 50 responses per province/territory to complete the regional analysis.
Choose one of the three surveys designed for farm owner/operators, farm workers (family or paid) or agricultural organizations.
We need your help! By taking the time to complete a short 10 – 15 minute online survey you will be making sure your farm’s needs are included in this important work that will help government and educators create policies and programs that will shape future farm labour requirements.
