The Ontario Government, through Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS), is providing information sessions to help farmers and other agri-food operators better protect workers’ health and safety and prevent COVID-19 outbreaks. The webinar session for South Western Ontario is being offered on March 22, 2021 and is hosted by Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in collaboration with Randy Pettapiece, the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister and MPP Rick Nicholls. This will take place from 3:45 – 4:45 pm on March 22, 2021. For more information, please look to the accompanying attachment.

The 2021 growing season is already underway in some parts of the agri-food industry and temporary foreign agricultural workers have started to arrive in Ontario. This information session will help all farmers and operators enhance health and safety requirements and apply best practices in their operations.
