The federal Quarantine Act has been extended until September 30, 2020. As a result, the Mandatory Isolation Support Program for Temporary Foreign Workers (MISTFWP) application deadline has been extended to September 15, 2020.
Canadian employers can apply for the federal payment of $1,500 per temporary foreign worker if they have incurred incremental costs associated with their worker’s mandatory 14-day isolation period. Completing your application as soon as possible is encouraged to prevent delays.
To be eligible for reimbursement, the temporary foreign worker’s date of arrival can be no earlier than March 26, 2020, and no later than September 30, 2020 (the date on which the current special order under the Quarantine Act is set to expire).
