It was recently announced that Alberta Labour is funding a grant administered by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. This is due to the changes to the Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Code to include farms and ranches that employ waged, non-family workers. This will help improve health and safety within operations, as well as compliance with the OH&S Code that takes effect on December 1st, 2018.
Eligible applicants may apply for financial support for up to 50 percent of costs for eligible expenses identified in the applicable funding list. Eligible applicants may submit a maximum of two applications per fiscal year.
