Provinces and territories will be able to use this funding to undertake a range of activities, including carrying out infection prevention and control readiness assessments, making improvements to ventilation and hiring additional staff or topping up wages. Through the Safe Restart Agreement, the Government of Canada is providing provincial/territorial governments with over $19 billion that will help them restart the economy over the coming months, while making Canada more resilient to future surges in cases of COVID-19. This includes $740 million in funding to support our most vulnerable populations, including infection prevention and control measures to protect those in long-term care, and those receiving home care and palliative care. Additional funding commitments were made to support infection and prevention and control measures in long-term care, including $1 million to engage with third parties to help identify resources to conduct readiness assessments in long-term care facilities and support training on infection prevention and control.
