This funding stream is intended to protect workers in Ontario, address potential risks of COVID‑19 outbreaks, and offset the unexpected costs experienced by employers and employees related to wage continuance.
The Enhanced Agri-Food Workplace Protection Program provides funding to businesses through three streams:
- Stream 1: Agri-Food Workplace COVID‑19 Prevention and Protection (WCPP)
- Stream 2: Wage, Isolation and Quarantine Support (WIQS) for Employers of International Agri-food Workers (IAWs) and Domestic Workers in Ontario
- Stream 3: Congregate Housing Infection Prevention and Control Measures (CHIPC)
