An apprenticeship posting is a hands-on opportunity for people to learn the skills necessary to become a farmer. We recommend that all apprenticeship postings include room, board and a stipend, as well as access to learning resources and time spent with farmers in the field to learn the trade.

We recommend farmers seeking apprentices also list their opportunity on the Stewards Of Irreplaceable Land (SOIL) website. SOIL provides guidance and resources to host farmers and farm apprentices and offers an online catalogue of listings for both parties to peruse.

By posting at Young Agrarians, the expectation is that you are offering a fair and equitable opportunity, that complies with labour regulations in your province or territory (e.g. see BC regulations here). All provinces have different rules on apprenticeship employment regulations. Please check out these best practices from SOIL on labour laws, education, interview questions, contracts, and more.

YA offers this service free of charge to farmers across Canada. If you appreciate this listing service, and would like to support our work with new and young farmers, please consider making a donation — even small amounts help! Thank you!


Please note it may take a few days to get your posting online during high-volume times of the year (winter and spring). Please plan accordingly. Thank you!
