Canada exempts temporary foreign workers from hotel quarantine

The Canadian federal government has expanded their COVID-19 protocols for travellers, but agricultural temporary foreign workers will be temporarily exempt from government-approved hotel quarantine requirements.

For travellers arriving to Canada by land, as of February 15, 2021, all travellers, with some exceptions, will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular test result taken in the United States within 72 hours of pre-arrival, or a positive test taken 14 to 90 days prior to arrival. In addition, as of February 22, 2021, travellers entering Canada at the land border will be required to take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival as well as toward the end of their 14-day quarantine. Essential workers such as truckers and emergency service providers, as well as cross border communities, will be exempt from this requirement.

Essential workers will be able to go straight from the airport to the farm, where they must isolate for 14 days under the supervision of their employer.
