Rapport/communiqué de presse

Status of Migrant Farm Workers in Canada 2002




UFCW Canada


In the fall of 2001, the United Farm Workers of America (UFWA) Canadian office presented a report on the Status of Migrant Farm Workers in Canada to the federal Minister of Labour. This report provided an analysis of Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, itemizing the many areas within the program that were ineffective and failed to adequately protect the rights of migrant workers. The report recommended a number of changes the federal government needed to make in order to address and correct the inadequacies of this program. In the year since the report was received, the federal government has taken no action to address the many issues and concerns of migrant farm workers and the inadequacies of its SAW program.
