PEI has initiated a financial assistance program to support housing for foreign agricultural workers

On April 11, 2024, Prince Edward Island started a grant program to improve housing for foreign agricultural workers. The Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) in Agriculture Housing Improvement Program will provide grants of up to $15,000 for eligible agriculture operations. These grants can improve living conditions like ventilation, Internet, telephone, heat pump installation, maintenance, and safety equipment. Deputy Premier and Agriculture Minister Bloyce Thompson emphasized the importance of TFWs for PEI's agriculture industry and local economy. To be eligible, PEI's agriculture industry operations must have the Canadian Government's approval to hire TFWs through the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Stream.
