DIAZ MENDIBURO, Aaraón  and  MCLAUGHLIN, Janet. Structural Vulnerability and Health among Seasonal Agricultural Workers in Canada. Alteridades [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.51, pp.85-95. ISSN 2448-850X.

This article explains how migrant Mexican agricultural workers experience situations of risk that make them structurally vulnerable in the area of health. Although managed systems of migration, such as the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (Programa de Trabajadores Agrícolas Temporales) have diverse advantages -legality, benefits, formal wages and safer travel conditions- it is argued that the controlling nature of these programs also generates vulnerabilities.

Keywords : labor migration; transnational programs; precarious work; Canadian agribusiness.
