Hire a temporary worker through the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program – Wages, working conditions and occupations
3. Wages, working conditions and occupations
You must provide temporary foreign workers with the same wages and benefits as those provided to Canadian and permanent resident employees working in the same occupation. In addition, temporary foreign workers working in a unionized environment must be paid the wage rate as established under the collective bargaining agreement.
If you plan to hire temporary foreign workers in non-livestock high-skilled positions, you must consult the Streams for High-wage or Low-wage positions to determine the wage.
Employers must agree to review and adjust the wage of the temporary foreign worker to ensure it meets or exceeds, at all times, the requirements as outlined in the wage tables.
- apiary products
- fruits, vegetables (including on-farm canning/processing of these products if grown on the farm)
- nursery-grown trees including Christmas trees, greenhouses/nurseries
- pedigreed canola seed
Note: Employers hiring temporary foreign workers in the province of Quebec must consult the wage table provided by the ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) (available in French only).
