Partnership-Funded COVID-19 Consulting and Training for Agricultural Producers

Through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership), the federal and provincial governments are launching the Agri-Food Workplace Protection Program to help agricultural producers and meat processing facilities enhance health and safety measures to prevent 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.

This project is funded in part by the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.

Our Account Managers are available to help you with the Agri-Food Workplace Protection Program - Agriculture Producers, as well as to address your health and safety concerns. Please reach out to Customer Care to be connected with an Account Manager today.
