National Agricultural Labour Strategy

Canada’s agricultural sector faces unique labour challenges that hinder the productivity of agricultural and processing operations, result in lost economic potential.

AAFC is developing a sector-specific strategy to address chronic labour shortages in farming and food processing. The goal is to develop solutions that consider unique regional and sub-sector concerns. This will better position the sector to address short-term pressures and advance long-term solutions to help farmers and food processors meet their needs.

AAFC has opened a window for Online consultations from June 27, 2022 and will close on September 28, 2022.
