Canada's farming sector fears labour shortages due to cuts in temporary foreign workers

Canada's farming sector is concerned about the federal government's plans to reduce the number of temporary foreign workers (TFWs), which could significantly impact the industry due to its heavy reliance on these workers. The decision to lower the share of temporary residents to five percent of the total population over the next three years has been criticized for unfairly categorizing TFWs with international students. Reducing up to 600,000 TFWs over the next three years, aimed at reducing demand on Canada's limited housing supply, is expected to impact agricultural workers directly.
