This sector report it the first in a series of reports available on Worktrends.ca. It investigates the current state of the Agriculture and Agri-food sector for various geographical entities: starting with Canada, refining further to Ontario, and finally reducing the scope to Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford (EMO) counties. The study progresses through a series of topics such as: economic performance (contribution to the GDP), industrial structure (employers and non-employers), employment (demographics, employment, composition, productivity), and brief forecasting. The analysis is difficult because of the extensive ramifications of pure Agriculture into the local, provincial and national economies. The report is addressed to a broad audience: employers, government planners and analysts, job seekers, career councilors, educators, students, etc. Please download and read the attached document.
