Canada will require 30,000 immigrants to replace retiring farmers

The Canadian farming industry is facing a significant challenge - approximately 40 percent of farmers in Canada are expected to retire within the next ten years, with 66 percent of them needing a succession plan.

This means the country will soon face a shortage of farmers, which could seriously impact the economy and food security in the long run.

To address this challenge, a proposal has been made to update Canada's immigration programs and allow 30,000 new immigrants to focus on farming.

The agriculture industry is also expected to see a decrease of 24,000 workers engaged in farming, nursery, and greenhouse activities.
