Identifying On-Farm Occupations: Occupational Matrix for the On-Farm Sector

Through the Identifying On-Farm Occupations project, the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) has identified occupations and examined the classification of work in the primary agricultural sector. CAHRC held a series of focus groups with producers from across the country to gather information about the work performed in the production of various commodities. Producers also described the skills, knowledge, experience and training that are required for these occupations.
