Agricultural Employment Pilot Project

June 24, 2016

Are you a primary producer, food processor or agri-business located in Saskatchewan?

To address the shortage of workers in agriculture, the Canadian Agricultural Human Resources Council has implemented a pilot project with the Saskatchewan Abilities Council to match job seekers and ag employers through their Partners in Employment Offices in Saskatoon, Regina, Yorkton and Swift Current. The project is focused on finding jobs for people who are currently underrepresented in the agriculture workforce, specifically people with varying abilities. A dedicated Agricultural Employment Coordinator has been hired to oversee the project.

Partners in Employment provides supported employment for all job seekers and employers at no charge. We specialize in helping people with barriers to employment find work that’s right for them and assisting employers with obtaining the right employees. Call Kim Kennett at 306-657-2450 or email kkennett@abilitiescouncil.sk.ca for more information.
