Farms and Temporary Foreign Workers Guidance

Publication type: 
Guidelines

This document outlines recommendations for all farms to meet the orders, notices, and guidance issued by Prince Edward Island’s Chief Public Health Officer for farms employing Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) and domestic workers. The requirements apply to workers in PEI under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program and the Agriculture Stream (AgStream) programs. Detailed information, checklists and tools to help complete the requirements are found in the linked documents.

TFWs are visitors to Canada who are away from their families and may be unfamiliar with Canadian safety and health care systems. This document will help employers understand the additional requirements for protecting the health of TFWs, including ensuring that those workers are aware of how to seek help if they are ill or unwell.

This document will be updated periodically as new information becomes available.
