The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce team will return to the World Trade Centre full
time. With COVID19 case numbers dropping and the easing of pandemic restrictions provincially,
Chamber staff were notified today that return to in-office work would commence April 11th.
We are writing today on behalf of our members regarding the City of Edmonton Face Covering Bylaw
which remains in place as the provincial requirements end on March 1st, 2022. Like the views expressed on the ending of the Restrictions Exemption Program, most businesses would prefer to see the municipal Face Covering Bylaw repealed in coordination with the provincial program, although some of our members have shared different perspectives on this issue.
We provide this correspondence from the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, on behalf of our members. We would like to express concern relating to the potential city council decision to bring in a bylaw that would require a municipal proof of vaccination program to go into effect for public spaces and private enterprise.Read More
