COVID-19 Awareness Course for Fruit Pickers in BC | Available in English & French (UPDATED).
To work as a fruit picker in British Columbia, workers must successfully complete the COVID-19 Awareness course.
The purpose of the COVID-19 Awareness course is to ensure that workers coming to B.C. from other parts of Canada are informed and understand the provincial COVID-19 health and safety requirements.
The COVID-19 Awareness course can be completed by workers online and employers can download a presentation copy to provide during their new worker orientation.
