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.
