Pork board to post jobs on its website

The Ontario Pork marketing board will soon begin posting jobs on its website.

It’s building on work by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council.

The council is poised to unveil an online national agriculture jobs board where farmers will be able to post their jobs and job seekers can use the interactive features of the site to be guided to a particular job that fits their needs and skills.

The site will also skim other job boards across the country and list those jobs too so “it will be the most up-to-date national jobs board for jobs in agriculture, ” says Mark Wales of the council.

The Ontario pork board and the Ontario Pork Industry Council will soon set up a trial that’s specific to the Ontario hog industry.

Who knows but what this might end the reliance on the Temporary Foreign Workers Program and the Temporary Seasonal Workers Program.
