Strengthening International Partnerships–Translating the Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines for French Canadians

Youth working in agriculture are at significant risk of injury and death, and many of these injuries are associated with youth doing work that does not match their developmental level. The Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines (AYWG) can help farm parents and supervisors assign work that matches a youth’s abilities, thus reducing injury risk.However, these guidelines are not accessible for non-English speaking populations. Approximately 21% of Canadians have French as their mother tongue, so to make guidelines accessible to this population, the National Children’s Center partnered with the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association to translate them into French.
