Hello everyone,

Welcome back! We are thrilled that Alberta has entered Stage 3 of the Open for Summer Plan as of July 1st. Alberta’s 3-stage plan explains how restrictions will ease while protecting the health-care system. This plan was activated to safely lift restrictions as vaccinations increased and hospitalizations declined. We are able to fully open as all public health measures have now been lifted!
