Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Covid-19 is going anywhere in Spring 2021.
Given that it’s the upcoming busy season for floriculture operations and workers, here’s a look at some upcoming webinars related to Covid safety, worker compensation, and surviving as a business during Covid.
So keep your calendars open on Feb 2nd, 3rd, 10th and 17th! More information on these webinars and registration can be found below.
Have you applied for OMAFRA’s Enhanced Agri-Food Workplace Protection Program (EAWPP), to help mitigate risks and costs from COVID??? If not, there’s still time!
Funding continues to be available until February 26th, 2021 on a first come, first serve basis. Funding up to $15,000 per farm is available for preventative health and safety measures. Up to $100,000 is available per property for on-farm worker safety improvement programs.
As part of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), a funding stream has been launched to promote collaboration between agricultural and value-chain partners. Creating partnerships accelerates the creation and adoption of innovation for our industry.
