Meet David, Sesonal Agricultural Worker from Mexico

My name is David López Parra and I come from the state of Puebla in Mexico. I’ve been coming to Canada for four years – always working on this farm. Here, I pick strawberries and also plant all types of melons, watermelons and other vegetables that are harvested here.

My family are doing very well and because of this, our lives have improved a lot. I speak to my family every day. That is very necessary.

For fun, I watch TV and I play football, sometimes with some of my coworkers here. I like it here. I like the system and the fellowship.

Back home, I work in construction. I do that in the winter when I go home.
