COVID-19 keeps challenging farmers in British Columbia

The continuous pandemic crisis is making it harder for farmers in British Columbia to get seasonal agricultural workers they heavily rely on.

The B.C. Agriculture Council said that 800 foreign workers were expected to arrive in the province in January, but 100 are still in their home countries.

Executive Director Reg Ens said that these foreign workers still wish to come to B.C. because their families rely on their income.

A third of the workers who didn’t arrive was related to challenges in getting testing.
