Finding skilled and unskilled farm workers can be a challenge. Some sector organizations, such as Potatoes NB, offer help during peak harvest times.
Advertising for farm help can be done via many avenues today (e.g., the Internet, Facebook, Kijiji, job bank listings, local newspapers, radio and television).
The Canadian Agricultural Human Resources Council (CAHRC) is an excellent resource for the new or experienced farmer looking for assistance in finding help or receiving training in human resources and other related topics. It can be contacted at 1-866-430-7457 (toll-free) or at: www.cahrc-ccrha.ca.
Temporary foreign workers
Hiring temporary foreign workers is another possibility that some farmers use, particularly for seasonal needs. New Brunswick has developed an employer guide to help employers navigate through this process.
