A Model for Managed Migration? Re-Examining Best Practices in Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program

Published on 8 February 2010

This paper situates Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SAWP) within the policy and scholarly debates on ”best practices” for the management of temporary migration, and examines what makes this programme successful from the perspective of states and employers.

Drawing on extensive qualitative and quantitative study of temporary migration in Canada, this article critically examines this seminal temporary migration programme as a ”best practice model” from internationally recognized rights-based approaches to labour migration, and provides some additional best practices for the management of temporary labour migration programmes.
