Job Postings

 All farm job and internship submissions must:

  • Meet current labour standards for your province and pay at least minimum wage (or minimum piece rate for applicable crops). See minimum wages by province here.
  • Be a fair and equitable opportunity 
  • Include information about compensation and details on duties and tasks expected for the position
  • Be on a farm that uses ecological and/or organic practices

The difference between a farm job and an internship, is that internships should include more educational time with the employer to help interns dip their toes into all aspects of running a farm, and they usually include room and board (although interns are not legally required to live on-farm).

Farm employers may wish to charge interns an Education Fee to cover additional training time. A well-structured agreement with an intern will charge separately for room, board and education, and pay at least minimum wage to ensure the position is meets all legal employment standards.

Young Agrarians only posts paid internship opportunities. Please see our blog post that explains this in more detail.

For more information about hiring farm workers, minimum wage and piece rates, see the provincial regulations below: 

We reserve the right to remove a posting from our website if we receive a negative report about a farm’s labour practices.
