To the seasonal agricultural works and the local farmers, thank you continuing to move forward with farming this year so that food can be brought to the tables of Canadians during this time.

2022 Seasonal Agriculture Workers COVID-19 Program Requirements
Workplace Health and Safety


As with all employers, the Occupational Health and Safety Act applies on farms where seasonal agriculture workers are employed.  While the HNHU is not responsible for oversight of workplace practices beyond seasonal agricultural worker housing, we strongly recommend employers stay up to date and implement provincial guidelines as well as any other applicable regulatory requirements.  For further guidance, please consult the Ministry of Labour.
