Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My question is for the Department of Agriculture.
We know that in April the federal government announced the $50-million program to help farmers and fish processors who were bringing in temporary foreign workers during the COVID-19 crisis. We know that at the end of that program employers are eligible for up to $1,500 per foreign worker to help cover the costs of complying with the mandatory two-week quarantine upon their arrival in Canada. We know that employers must provide accommodation for those employees during that self-isolation period and pay those workers during the 14-day period.
According to a spokesperson from the Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food, if an employer is found not to be compliant with those requirements under the Quarantine Act with the TFW program, they would no longer be eligible for the $1,500.
Could you inform the committee of how many inspections have been conducted to ensure employers are compliant with the requirements under the Quarantine Act with the TFW program to date?
