About six hundred Baja Californians have already traveled to Canada under a close to half a century old temporary labor program.
National Employment Service Director in Baja California Patricia Rios recently told La Voz newspaper that the Agricultural Temporary Workers Program, signed in 1974, has permitted Mexican nationals to seasonally work in Canada.
The agency registers workers and follows applicants in every step of the program.
Rios said some of the workers are new to the program while others have been hired for years by Canadian companies.
After registration and paperwork signing workers travel to Mexico City and then fly to Canada to work.
Rios said the program allows applicants to register from their home states. The agency helps applicants with all necessary documents, especially passports.
