Farm workers, greenhouse workers, equipment operators, maintenance workers, truck drivers, administrative staff, and others working in the agricultural sector must comply with the requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Businesses or workplaces employing temporary foreign workers are required to follow additional procedures upon their entry to Canada, including self-isolation.

The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) strongly recommends that real estate businesses follow the direction of public health authorities by limiting showings to situations where they are absolutely necessary. Real estate businesses are further advised to look into alternative technological solutions to minimize the need for in-person interactions with their clients.

  • For more detailed guidance and FAQs on how to conduct business safely and efficiently during the COVID-19 pandemic, real estate personnel and those actively looking to purchase or rent a home are encouraged to visit the RECO’s website.
