Study of Seasonal Farmworkers from Mexico and the Caribbean Working on Ontario Farms

Published: October 3, 2006

In 2003, The North-South Institute (NSI) did a major study of the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (CSAWP). Two main goals of that study were to find out what parts of the program worked well and what parts were not working well for both farmworkers and farm owners. Another goal was to suggest ways to improve living and working conditions for farmworkers.

This report  is a summary of what the study learned about how the program operates in Ontario. It describes what workers said about their experiences working on Ontario farms and suggests ways to help make working and living conditions better for the workers.
