of Migrant Workers in Maritime Canada
• What are the experiences of migrant workers in the agri/food business in the Canadian Maritimes?

Participation consists of an anonymous phone interview that will last approximately one hour. Participants will be asked about their experiences in the Canadian Maritimes during the COVID-19 health pandemic.
