Subsidies for Migrant Worker Isolation Costs

The Government of Canada recently announced up to $50 million to assist farmers, fish harvesters, and food production and processing employers with the incremental costs associated with the mandatory quarantine period for temporary foreign workers arriving from abroad.

Employers in the primary agriculture, fish, seafood and food processing industries can receive $1,500 per temporary foreign worker hired through the Mandatory Isolation Support for Temporary Foreign Workers Program. The funding is meant to assist with incremental costs during the mandatory quarantine period such as:

* wages and benefits;
* off-site accommodations;
* transportation to and from any off-site accommodations;
* food or food allowances.

This funding is eligible for costs retroactive to March 26, 2020 until November 1st 2020. For more information, see the link below:
