Canada’s national commodity list (NCL) wages are now available online for 2021.

“The Consumer Price Index increased by 1.46% for the upcoming year and wages were adjusted to reflect this change,” says Western Agriculture Labour Initiative (WALI).

The NCL applies to both seasonal and non-seasonal work, and helps determine eligibility and pay for workers. “Access to the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program and the Agricultural Stream [within the Temporary Foreign worker Program] is limited to employers hiring workers for the specified commodities on the NCL.”
