View on: FacebookTwitter | LinkedIn | YouTube

An apple grower from B.C. talks about how important his workers are to him. He has developed a real bond with them because they live close to each other and work with each other every day. His workers work hard, are reliable, and are happy to be supporting their families. For us to have Canadian food, and affordable food, we need programs like the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program. It’s a “win-win” situation.
