Recently Ontario has experienced new positive COVID-19 cases and outbreaks on farms in some areas. As part of Ontario’s outbreak management response, the Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development will conduct proactive workplace inspections beginning mid-January 2021. These inspections focus on workplaces in the farming and agricultural sectors where temporary foreign agricultural workers are known to work.
Join us to learn more about this province-wide initiative, which aims to:
- Raise awareness and compliance amongst farm workers, supervisors and employers about COVID-19 health and safety requirements
- Enhance protection for temporary foreign agricultural workers living and working on farming and agricultural operations in the province
- Increase compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and applicable regulations in the farming community
- Help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and in the community
