Dozens of migrant workers have complained of poor conditions on Nova Scotia farms

HALIFAX—Dozens of complaints from temporary foreign workers alleging poor living and working conditions on Nova Scotia farms — uncovered in a Star investigation — have never been shared or investigated provincially. And Premier Stephen McNeil says his government needs to “do a better job” of ensuring migrant workers know how to seek protection from the labour board.

Between 2009 and 2018, temporary foreign workers lodged thousands of complaints with the Mexican government about their Canadian employers.

In those years, the Mexican labour ministry recorded 89 complaints connected to Nova Scotia farms, including being forced to work without pay, living in a snake-infested bunkhouse, and not being allowed to go to the bathroom during working hours.
