Update from the Legislature - June 16

June 16, 2021

The legislature is sitting this week, with the legislative session expected to adjourn for the summer recess no later than tomorrow. With the strong possibility of a Speech from the Throne this fall, any legislation not passed by the time the session adjourns will likely die on the order paper.

With vaccine uptake about to plateau, the province announced a three-draw lottery as an additional incentive for Albertans to receive their first and second doses. Each of the three winners will receive a $1 million prize. Individuals who have been vaccinated with their first dose may register for the July draw from June 14 until one week after 70% of eligible Albertans have had their first dose.

The two-week countdown for entering the third and final stage of the province’s  “Open for Summer Plan” plan will be triggered when 70% of Albertans aged 12 and older have received their first vaccine dose. Based on new incentives and the current pace of vaccinations, the province projects Alberta will enter Stage Three by early July.
