Update – Agricultural operations are essential
The government of Québec has ordered the closure of all nonessential businesses and other services from March 25 to April 13, 2020.
Agricultural operations are however on the list of essential services and commercial activities, so they may continue operating.
The following have been identified as priority areas :
- Food production (for example agricultural operations, food processing, drink production, slaughterhouses, and market-garden vegetable production)
- Production of inputs needed by priority areas
- Agricultural operation suppliers (machinery, fertilizer, etc.)
Producteurs et productrices acéricoles du Québec will continue operations while adhering to public health guidelines. Most of the Longueuil office staff will work remotely.
