NS Ag Job Portal Launches

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

In response to the labour gap being experienced across the agriculture industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture has launched the NS Ag Job Portal. This portal will help to connect employers and job seekers through a job board. Farm and processing jobs can be posted and eligibility to use this platform is not limited to members of the NSFA. The following message from NSFA details the different ways people can take advantage of the job portal:

To address the labour gap that Nova Scotia farms will experience this year, NSFA and our Agriculture Sector Program have launched a job portal. This portal has three parts; 

1.       An employee registration, where those who are interested in working on farms can submit their information, relevant skills, and areas they are able to work. They will be sent relevant jobs in their areas to apply for.  Those looking for employment can visit nsagjobs.ca 
2.       An employer post a job form, where farms can submit job openings on their operation. These will be reviewed by staff and then added to the job board. 
3. The job board will house all available job opportunities that have been submitted to NSFA.  

Don’t hesitate to contact NSFA directly if you have any questions.
