Connecting employers to workers
BCAC leads a labour committee that oversees the policies and issues related to human resources and skills development in the B.C. agriculture sector. In addition to addressing the need for finding local hires, the committee also works to assist employers who require temporary foreign workers (TFW) to fill the demand for labour.
INFORMATION ON TEMPORARY FOREIGN WORKERS
BCAC, through a subsidiary company, Western Agriculture Labour Initiative (WALI), works with employers and governments to enable employers to find adequate domestic workers and improve working conditions for temporary workers.
All information that directly relates to temporary foreign workers and the Seasonal Agriculture Worker Program, including housing inspections can be found on the WALI website.
