Abstract

Global restructuring has severely impacted the agricultural sector in Mexico, forcing rural peoples to migrate to either the United States or Canada. The author focuses on the experiences of Mexican agricultural migrant workers in Canada that participate in a government regulated guest worker program. She claims that: gender is a fundamental category of analysis to study these issues; Mexican labour has a profound impact on in the agricultural industry in Canada; restructuring has obligated migrants to sustain a controlled and temporary labour market in Canada and that these complex processes have generated new practices of masculinity and femininity among Mexicans.
