This audit focused on whether Employment and Social Development Canada managed the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to protect agricultural workers from COVID‑19 in 2020 and 2021. We focused particularly on the amended Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations and the department’s inspections, which were meant to verify whether employers followed the COVID‑19 regulatory requirements. These requirements came into force in April 2020 and were in place for the duration of our audit. We also examined whether Agriculture and Agri‑Food Canada verified that the recipients it funded under two of its COVID‑19 support programs met program terms and conditions.

Yet, there is still more to learn about COVID-19.

The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to symptoms lasting for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection as post COVID-19 condition. Some studies have reported later symptoms in patients with a severe COVID-19 infection. For example, those who were hospitalized or needed intensive care during recovery. However, post COVID-19 condition may also occur for people with mild or asymptomatic infection who were asked to isolate at home during the infectious phase.

People infected with COVID-19 can shed the virus through their stool, even if they don't have any symptoms. Testing a community's sewage (wastewater) can tell us if COVID-19 is increasing or decreasing in that community. Our scientists have developed a pan-Canadian wastewater network to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. This is in collaboration with provincial, territorial and municipal governments and academia across Canada.

COVID-19 causes a respiratory type infection that is mild in most of the population but can be more severe in those who are older adults or those with chronic underlying conditions. Having a disability alone may not put you at higher risk for getting COVID-19 or having severe illness if you do get COVID-19. However, some people with disabilities might be at a higher risk of infection or severe illness because of their age, underlying medical conditions or their disability which could put them at greater risk of being exposed and acquiring the infection.
