Agriculture is one of Canada's leading economic sectors. According to Statistics Canada, Canada's agriculture and agri-food system contribute $143 billion to our overall GDP or about 7.4%. The agriculture industry provides job opportunities for Canadian residents, and there are nearly 270,000 workers in agricultural industries.
Farming in Canada is an integral part of the labour force and the economy. Unfortunately, Canadian farmers are at constant risk, with hazards on the job brought about by the use of equipment, especially heavy machinery, the labour associated with soil conservation, not to mention the unsafe chemicals or extreme weather.
