BC’s agriculture sector will benefit from a new online resource.

The BC Farm, Fish and Food Job Connector site will provide information about available jobs and careers in agriculture, as well as giving farmers, seafood businesses and food processors a one-stop shop to support their hiring and planning needs. The site also has sector-specific information and guidance to support businesses as they adapt their recruitment and human resource management in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Many British Columbians are passionate about buying local and are looking towards careers in the agricultural, seafood and food processing sectors. We are making it easier for employers and employees to connect so we can fill vacancies and get more British Columbians working to put fresh and local food on our tables,” said Agriculture Minister Lana Popham. 

“At the same time, we recognize the workforce challenges brought on by COVID-19 and are helping to address the need to establish a secure agricultural labour force so we can generate economic activity and maintain food security in our communities.”

The site will connect to agriculture, food processing, aquaculture and marine fisheries jobs posted on Work BC, industry sites and the BC Food and Beverage websites. It will also be a centralized source to find information and tools provided by BC’s industry groups.
