Meet Efreen, Seasonal Agricultural Worker from Mexico

I’m Efreen Sanchez. I come from Mexico in Xcalak. I’ve been coming to work in Canada for 21 years – always on this farm.

Here, my work is planting; sometimes driving tractors and trucks.  I’ll do any of the work, any of the time.

By coming here, I’m giving my family a better way to live. My two children are now students that go to the university. My daughter is studying to be a doctor. My son is studying to be a dentist. I am very proud of them. I am very happy for them.
