BC farm operators planning to receive temporary foreign workers must first apply for provincial authorization.

The application form is available online, but farm operators must first complete a COVID-19 workplace risk assessment and implement a COVID-19 infection prevention and control protocol.

Once the form is complete, a site inspection will be conducted by provincial inspection staff, using the infection prevention and control protocol to determine a farm’s compliance and readiness to receive workers.

Advertisment

The site inspection will be conducted prior to the release of temporary foreign workers after their 14 day self-isolation period.
