Ontario has a good temporary worker program. If the farmer or rancher needs temp workers he can sign up with the Provincial government. Depending on the type of work you want them for you may have to ask for a finding that the able bodied Canadians will not or can not do the work. This keeps employers from just going for the cheap labor. The employer pays the charter flight and a wage regulated by the government and provides board and housing. The work conditions and housing are inspected by government inspectors. The wages are paid to a bank in Mexico, not handed to the worker in Ontario, encouraging them to return home. The employer pays their health and workers insurance. The return charter flight paid by employer returns him to Mexico. If Jose was a great worker and you have trained him to your task you can request him next year from the government's contractor.Think how many problems this would solve if the USA had such a worker program. This program may have changed a little since I was familiar with it, but it was workable to get those tomatos and lettuce harvested.
