Travel letter for Quebec workers

Many Quebec youth (and youth from other parts of BC and other provinces) travel to British Columbia each year to plant trees in forested areas and then to help with the harvest of the Okanagan Cherry crop.  During COVID-19, restrictions are in place for non-essential travel.  However, agricutlural work is defined as essential work in the province of BC and as critical infrastructure by Public Safety Canada.  

The BCFGA is providing the following documents to help youth workers travel across provincial borders and navigate travel restrictions due to COVID-19.
