Statement on the Government of Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy
01 May 2020
“The Government of Alberta’s relaunch strategy provides a measured approach that strikes the right balance between upholding public health and helping businesses devastated by the impacts of COVID-19. Our most recent survey showed that a third of businesses don’t have the capacity to withstand four more weeks of lockdown. We look forward to hearing more details about timelines; however, this strategy is a strong step forward to provide businesses more of the certainty they desperately need to plan for their successful future.
Most of all, we should be very proud of the leadership Edmontonians and Albertans have shown in reducing the virus’s spread – these selfless actions will allow us to re-open our economy as quickly and safely as possible.”
– Janet Riopel, President and CEO of the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce
