Join OMAFRA in a one-hour webinar for all eligible businesses interested in learning more about the Enhanced Agri-food Workplace Protection Program to keep workers safe against COVID-19.
The webinar will provide details about recent changes to the program and tips to apply for financial assistance.
The ministry is receiving applications until February 1, 2022, or until funding is fully allocated.
In 2021-2022, the program will provide $10 million to help farmers, food and beverage processors, primary food processors, industry organizations and on-farm service providers purchase COVID-19 rapid antigen tests, personal protective equipment, and other safety supplies to better protect workers.
The $36 million program will also help eligible businesses who experience unexpected costs because of a COVID-19 outbreak among on-farm employees or due to an extended quarantine period beyond 14 days.
