The first batch of seasonal farmworkers from Jamaica depart for Canada
The first group of Jamaican seasonal farmworkers arrived in Canada to be employed under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SAWP). Each year over 10,000 Jamaican seasonal workers come to Canada, and about 85% of them are returning farmworkers. Almost 230,000 seasonal workers have participated in the SAWP over the years. Most of the workers from Jamaica will work in Ontario, where they will be engaged in irrigating, planting, weeding, and working in greenhouses; working at poultry farms, as well as fruit and vegetable production.
