The Government of Canada has announced up to $6.1 million through the Emergency Processing Fund for 34 food processing companies in southwestern Ontario.

Recipients are using this funding to make adjustments to enable social distancing, purchase reuseable personal protective equipment, implement biosecurity measures, install handwashing stations and protective barriers and develop employee training.

“Known as one of Canada’s richest farm belts, southwestern Ontario is an agricultural powerhouse. Despite the many challenges caused by the pandemic, local food producers and processors have shown true resilience. These investments are supporting their efforts to protect the health and well-being of workers so they can continue supplying good food for Canadians and people around the world,” said Neil Ellis, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.
