Update from the Legislature - June 2

June 2, 2021

Last week the province unveiled Alberta’s “Open for Summer Plan”, a three stage plan for lifting Covid-19 restrictions based on vaccination thresholds and hospitalizations. We entered stage 1 yesterday which included an increase to capacity levels for outdoor activities, the resumption of outdoor patio dining and the reopening of personal and wellness services. Based on the current pace of vaccinations, the province projects we will enter Stage 2 on June 10 and Stage 3 by late June or early July.

The legislature is in session this week with several bills up for debate. Bill 56, which implements the changes to the Local Government Fiscal Framework that were announced in Budget 2021 and increases the 911 levy, is set to pass third reading in the coming days.
