• Quebec Farm Work - Harvest and Seasonal Jobs

    The Canadian Province of Quebec ranks second among all other territories in the North American country in total area, population, and gross domestic product, which includes an excess of $385 billion CAD. Agricultural outputs, bolstered by more than 3,500 agro-businesses and around 30,500 farms, produce close to $760 million CAD in revenues alone. Top commodities include berries, maple syrup, goat and ewe milks and cheeses, and various types of avian game. Expansive logging and timber farming also contribute to the burgeoning agricultural industry, with dense forests accounting for around 20% of total land area.

    Following British occupation, Quebec soon grew as a hub for cereal grains and eventually moved into fur trading thanks, in large part, to the St. Lawrence River running through the region. Most of the farming prevalent throughout the province takes place in southern areas below the 56th line of latitude. Lands surrounding the urban capital of Montreal serve as prime locations to grow crops due to fertile soils and low, flat terrain.

    Historically, southern Quebec contains the only climates suitable for crop growth on large, commercial scales, as northern areas of the territory experience mostly arctic weather patterns. For example: average temperatures in the northern Ungava Bay area range between -23 degrees Celsius in January to 11 degrees Celsius in July, while Montreal, sitting in the southernmost portions of the province, boasts average temps between -11 Celsius (January) and 20 Celsius (July). Snowfall and precipitation also affect the agricultural industry throughout the region; however, the Canadian territory generally receives a steady balance of sun and moisture. Many regions throughout the area experience close to 300 hours of sunshine during the summer months and achieve over 40% sunshine possible annually.

    Massive dairy farming operations like Ferme Landrynoise in St-Albert, QC, require huge staffs capable of caring for both robotic equipment and the animals used to fill large-scale orders. The farm maintains dozens of employees and continuously hires on new help as needs arise. Organizations like Quebec Farmers' Association (QFA) connect Quebec citizens interested in farming jobs with outfits similar to Ferme Landrynoise through a comprehensive network. Migrant workers, aspiring farmhands, and career fruit and vegetable pickers also find jobs visiting farms personally and asking about current vacancies.

    Applicants should note a majority of the province conducts business in French, which may complicate the employment process for international prospectors. The French-Canadian government imposes a $10.75 CAD hourly minimum wage for fruit and vegetable picking jobs, with increases available based on employment status, performance on the job, and tenure with any of the farming outfits in the region. Quebec agricultural industry base pay scales traditionally top around $13.00 CAD per hour. Specific rates may fluctuate based on commodities produced.

    Candidates may also qualify for job benefits. Depending on the establishment, farms may possess the ability to house and feed seasonal employees and/or full-time and part-time workers through small deductions in wages. Other work benefits include Canadian Pension Plans, paid time off, and access to company vehicles.
