WHAT IS SEASONAL EMPLOYMENT?

Seasonal employment refers to temporary jobs offered to workers for short durations. In response to labor shortages in Canada, the Canadian government has introduced programs specifically designed for Canadian employers to hire foreign workers when Canadian citizens or permanent residents are not available for these positions.

Seasonal worker programs cater to:

Businesses that open only for 3-9 months per year

Employers that need extra workers during peak periods

Businesses mainly in the fields of agriculture, landscaping, fishing, seafood processing, accommodation, food, recreation, road transportation, construction, forestry and logging
