IMPORTANT For Workers and Employers:
Although farm businesses are generally deemed exempt under current Alberta Workers Compensation Board (WCB) regulations, Employment & Skills Development Canada (ESDC) in most cases/streams requires foreign workers be covered under WCB or an approved equivalent benefit.
Employers are encouraged to have equivalent or better benefit programs in place in the event they need to demonstrate they have adequate coverage to meet ESDC requirements.
All workers, including foreign workers are encougaged to make themselves familar with thier worksite's current farm safety benefits, current farm safety protocols, and potential options for farm safety training.
