Request Inspection Online: Seasonal Worker Accommodations
If you plan to provide housing for any seasonal agricultural workers you hire, you must get your accommodations inspected through provincial Environmental Health. Any accommodation you provide must meet environmental health and safety requirements before the federal government will process your permit to hire migrant or temporary workers.
If your accommodation is ready, use the online form below to request an inspection.
This form is also available to download in PDF format.
What do I need to do to prepare my buildings for inspection?
It is your responsibility to ensure all buildings used for housing migrant workers are kept in good repair, in a clean and sanitary condition, and free from vermin and rodent infestation. For more information about the inspection criteria used to assess accommodations, refer to Housing Seasonal Agricultural Workers.
What do I need to complete the online form?
You will be asked to provide complete contact information, the civic address for each building to be inspected and the number of residents you plan to accommodate in each building.
Is there a fee for this inspection?
There is no fee for the housing inspection.
How long will it take to complete the housing inspection process?
Once you submit your request form, Environmental Health will contact you within two to three business days to arrange a suitable time for inspection.
