Relief for Canadian growers as more details of travel exemptions released

The OFVGA is extremely relieved to see more details released by the federal government regarding travel restriction exemptions.

There are still many details to be worked through, and the OFVGA looks forward to working with stakeholders including the public health officials, to address the logistical challenges associated with this effort and ensure all necessary measures are taken.

"Farmers are pleased to see the government respond so promptly to the looming shortage of agri-food workers and we are committed to working with all the appropriate agencies and departments to ensure their entry maintains strict public health protocols to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Top of mind for Canadian farmers is ensuring the safety and health of all Canadians. The next top priority is ensuring a constant food supply during the COVID-19 pandemic for all Canadians" said Canadian Federation of Agriculture President, Mary Robinson.

"We are still reviewing the details and will be in close contact with all relevant departments and industry stakeholders over the coming days to ensure these workers arrive safely and on time, while responsibly adhering to all public health requirements. We commend the government's quick reaction, ensuring the continued resilience of the Canadian food supply during these difficult times", continued CFA President, Mary Robinson.
