Re-opening guidelines

The Federal Government is currently working with the Provinces to develop "shared guidelines" for re-opening safely. Each province is different. Some have begun re-opening. Some are announcing re-opening plans. The Federal Government wants clear and coordinated guidelines from coast to coast to coast. Details will follow in the near future.


Since 1918, we have provided a single source for information on this vibrant and diverse industry to consumers, government, media and businesses.
