The processing time for securing foreign labour and the increasing number of refusals continues to threaten the viability of Canadian agriculture and agri-food operations.

When Canadians do not apply for advertised positions, producers should have access to a fair, efficient and transparent administration process to fill vacancies with international agricultural workers.
