Seasonal Labour Connections

Seasonal Labour Connections Program

Connecting Seasonal Workers with Local Farms and Fisheries

WorkingNB is undergoing a pilot project that aims to connect seasonal workers with employers experiencing high labour demand in the agriculture and fishery industries. The goal is to help employers find additional workers in times of need and to provide seasonal workers with additional employment opportunities when they are not working.

WorkingNB will ensure connections are also made with stakeholders that currently work with individuals and employers on farms and fisheries regarding workforce opportunities.


Seasonal Labour Connections


We’re looking for employers in the Agriculture, Aquaculture or Fisheries sectors that:

• Are struggling to find available workers to fill vacant positions

• Are willing to try an alternative approach to fill vacancies

• Are willing to share workers that have transferable skills

• Are experiencing frequent and serious labour shortages


• Support employers who have difficulty finding sufficient local labour from season to season.

• Support employers who cannot offer year-round employment due to the seasonality of work in the industries in which they operate.

• Extend the working hours of seasonal workers by working with employers who are willing to share these workers.

Seasonal Workers

We’re looking for seasonal workers who:

• Want to extend their work period and have difficulties finding additional employment.

• Are interested in developing new skills and experiences.

• Are willing to take on multiple jobs, one after the other.

• Are open to travel short or long distances to find work (mobile).
