Individual characteristics & earning levels of Caribbean migrant workers participating in the Canadian Foreign Agricultural Resource Management Services, established in 1966, are examined, based on a 1987 questionnaire survey of 297 farm workers in Ontario, & anthropological observations conducted in 1987/88. Findings show that migrant workers are able to plan life strategies based on the recurrent opportunities to work in Ontario; they are perceived as nomads, able to extend their geographic space. The minimal weekly wage of $250 per worker is considered a highly effective form of foreign aid, & there are benefits for Ontario's economy as well. 14 Tables, 15 References. I. Shagrir
