Seasonal Agricultural Worker
Trinidad Vargas Sanchez
Trinidad Sanchez has been coming to Canada from Mexico as a Seasonal Agricultural Worker for 31 years, always returning to Holland Acres, a farm owned by the Van Luyk family in the Holland Marsh region of Ontario. He arrives each April, returns home in mid-November and now leads the team of employees that helps to grow the farm’s crop of carrots, onions, parsnips and beets. He’s now accompanied annually by his son Eddie and son-in-law Juan. He says that work in Canada has given his family a lot of opportunities back home. Even though he misses his family when he’s away, he looks forward to returning to Canada each year.
