New video – Emotional statement about temporary foreign workers

We recently released our latest video in our campaign to celebrate international farm workers and to raise awareness of their importance to our industry.

About the video

Philippe Quinn, a farmer from Quebec, talks about the Guatemalans who work for him − especially Jose. It’s an amazing, heart-warming story full of generosity and love. We don’t talk enough about the impact of these relationships at a human level. Both sides learn so much from each other, and the compassion, respect and admiration forged over months and years of working together remains long after the season is over and we’ve said our goodbyes.
