The qualification process includes critical factors such as confirming the good health of candidates, supporting upgrading of English language skills, meeting the foreign workers at the airport and providing the foreign workers with settlement services for such basic things as getting a driver license in Canada or setting up a bank account — all things that farmers have had to do themselves until now.
The program includes a built-in follow up process so that if after 3 months the employee is not working out, Members can end the arrangement and receive a replacement worker at no added cost.
