Survey: National Agricultural Labour Strategy consultations

Share your thoughts on agricultural labour challenges and opportunities in Canada.

To further prepare for the development of a National Agricultural Labour Strategy, the Government of Canada is asking for feedback from the agriculture and agri-food sector.

Rejuvenating the Workforce: Developing a National Agricultural Labour Strategy (AgLS)

“Canada’s agricultural sector is an important engine of economic growth and social well-being that feeds millions of people in Canada and around the world,” reads a call to action from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC). “However, it faces unique labour challenges that hinder the productivity of agricultural and processing operations, result in lost economic potential, and create stress for employers and workers alike.”

Feedback is welcomes from people in the agriculture and agri-food sector, including, but not limited to employers, farmers, producers, processors, workers, unions, Indigenous communities, women in agriculture, youth, small and emerging sectors.

In providing feedback, consider any or all of the questions provided by AAFC:

  • What has your experience been with recruiting and retaining workers in the agricultural and agri-food sector?
  • What are the future skills and technology needs of the sector?
  • What potential solutions should be explored to help address labour shortages in the sector?

Consultation will remain open until September 28, 2022.
