AgriLMI: Agricultural Labour Market Information
Canada’s agriculture sector is poised for growth, as the global market for Canadian agricultural products rapidly expands. However, the sector faces significant labour challenges that could jeopardize its growth potential and its contribution to the national economy.
In 2014, 26,400 jobs went unfilled in Canada's agriculture sector, which cost the sector $1.5 billion in lost revenues, or 2.7% of product sales. In every province and across every commodity, labour shortages impact today’s production levels and tomorrow’s growth potential.
The Labour Market Information (LMI) initiative explored the sector’s labour challenges by examining the current labour market and developing data-driven projections of the sector’s labour supply and demand through to 2025. This information has been made available through a series of national, provincial, and commodity-specific reports and fact sheets that can be downloaded on this site.
