New Bilingual Magazine Helps Migrant Farm Workers in Canada

ATOCTLI, a new Canadian magazine in Spanish and English, will help migrant farm workers deal with the culture shock of working in Canada.
According to its website, every year in Canada, thousands of dollars in productivity are lost because farmers and migrant workers have difficulties communicating and working together due to language and cultural differences. AtocTli (which in the Nahuatl language means fertile soil) is a free magazine that provides techniques, communication strategies, intercultural information, resources and advice to both farmers and migrant workers. In the Workers Wellbeing section, the magazine also covers finances, diet, recipes and psychological advice.

This magazine is published every other month in Canada and Mexico. For more information, contact Margarita Caropresi at
