Shortage of Agriculture Workers Causing Problems in Alberta

Farmers in Alberta are facing difficulties in hiring workers to fill positions that pay $18 to $20 an hour. Agricultural employers say it is increasingly difficult to hire foreign workers, despite being exempt from federal caps limiting the number of foreign workers. Under new rules, farmers are required to advertise for Canadian workers for a minimum of 14 days, and then apply for a labour market impact assessment, before being allowed to hire foreign workers.
