Strengthening the agricultural labour force: Where the needs will be in the future? The Conference Board of Canada, March 2016.

The gap between labour supply and demand, which now stands at 59,000, will widen to 114,000 by 2025. The greatest labour shortages are in Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec. The horticulture sector is the most affected by labour shortages. An increase in global demand for food will be one of the main factors that will influence the outlook for demand. The increase in retirements and the decline in the number of young workers will lead to a decline in the supply of labour.
