The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) is partnering with Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) to provide agri-food businesses, organizations and associations with educational resources, tools and consulting services to help them meet Covid-19 health and safety requirements.

The Agri-food Workplace Protection Program, through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, is designed to help agriculture producers enhance health and safety measures to stop the spread of Covid-19. Under this program, WSPS can provide partnership-funded consulting and training related to modifications to existing agricultural workplaces and enhancing healthy workplace access and accommodation.

Applicants can submit expenses for temporary or permanent modifications (ie: shielding, barriers), PPE, medical equipment, and cleaning supplies incurred on or after May 15, 2020 that are eligible for 70 per cent cost share, to a maximum of $7,500 per project.
