Options and Opportunities for Attracting Non-traditional Workers to the Agricultural Industry

This report consolidates data research, focus-group findings, and an environmental scan of existing programs and services to identify Aboriginal people, immigrants, and persons with disabilities as three sources of non-traditional labour with the potential to make a contribution to the agriculture sector labour force.

The report also identifies barriers to employment and options for addressing these barriers, and includes an overview of the input provided by focus groups conducted with employment services agencies that work with each of the three non-traditional labour sources.
