Program to assist agriculture labour shortages

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—Haldimand Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett sees a recently announced program to address agri-food labour challenges as vital to the riding.

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) announced the provincial and federal government’s acceptance of OFA’s project proposal to rapidly develop a comprehensive support system for agriculture and food employers and job seekers.

“The Ontario government is committed to doing everything we can to support our farmers and food processors to meet their labour needs during this unprecedented time,” said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. “This project is one more way for us to invest in our farmers and the entire food supply chain so they can access the labour and training needed to continue delivering high-quality food to Ontario families.”
