Todd Crawford, an economist from the Conference Board of Canada, said Alberta faces the worst lost revenue, followed by Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Labour vacancies cost Canadian farmers in 2018 nearly double what they cost four years earlier, according to research released last week by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council.
The Labour Market Forecast found that 16,500 jobs went unfilled, costing $2.9 billion in lost revenue, or 4.7 percent of product sales. Previous work pegged lost revenue at $1.5 billion.
The bad news doesn’t end there.
