Workplace guidance for sector employers and employees

The following information outlines COVID-19 public health guidance relevant for the agriculture and agri-food sector.

Agriculture and Agri-food Canada does not develop or issue public health guidance. Rather, this page brings together existing federal public health guidance of importance to the sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This material has been assembled in close consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada. It does not address legislated occupational health and safety requirements for the workplace, nor does it replace public health guidance from local Public Health Authorities or the Public Health Agency of Canada. In general, public health guidance should be consistent across jurisdictions, however, where discrepancies exist, the more specific and/or local guidance normally takes precedence.

The guidance provided will be updated, as necessary, to respond to the impacts of COVID-19.

COVID-19 control plan checklist

This checklist has been developed as a resource to help farm businesses put in place a plan for mitigating the spread of COVID-19. While targeted to businesses with temporary foreign workers, its criteria and considerations in a simple checklist format are useful for all agricultural businesses.
