The agricultural sector is hiring far fewer people than at this time last year. There are 17,000 fewer jobs than in September 2019. Undoubtedly, recruitment has been particularly difficult, given the challenges of getting foreign workers. But with public investment discussions between Ottawa and the provinces on more controlled-environment agriculture projects, seeing fewer jobs in the sector is to be expected.
