CAN (ON): Workplace protection program accepting applications for on-farm changes made in March

On May 14, 2020 the ministry announced the launch of the Agri-Food Workplace Protection Program for Producers. However, many in the greenhouse sector had already made pro-active improvements to workplace safety in light of Covid-19.

If you fall into that category, the program is now accepting applications for changes made as far back as March 15 2020. Applications are being accepted until funding runs out.

The program has also been simplified to provide faster assistance by eliminating pre-approval. Growers can now submit eligible expenses up to the farm maximum ($7500). This now includes accommodation and/or transport costs related to outbreak prevention. More program details can be found on the OMAFRA website.
