The Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) wants to hear about the labour needs of smaller farmers across Canada and is asking them to participate in a web survey.
Gathering labour market information helps CAHRC understand and explain the nature and scope of the human resource challenges being faced by agriculture today, the council said in a release.
Research results also provide valuable baseline data that will be used by the council and its partners to develop a better way to collect, survey and track the ongoing employment needs of farmers and develop tools and resources to meet those needs.
Small-scale farm operators with annual gross receipts of less than $100,000 are encouraged to participate in the short online survey located on the CAHRC website (www.cahrc-ccrha.ca).Responses to the survey are strictly confidential and will be used to estimate labour force needs of smaller operations. Farm operators who complete the survey will also be entered into a draw for a chance to win $100.
