Alberta implemented enforcing measures to stop spread of COVID-19 restrict mass gatherings to protect Albertan's health and limit the spread of COVID-19. 
 
Through amendments to the Procedures Regulation under the Provincial Offences Procedures Act, community peace officers, in addition to police, will be able to issue tickets to enforce COVID-19 public health orders. Fines now administered through tickets for violating an order have increased from up to $100 per day to a prescribed fine of $1,000 per occurrence. Courts will also have increased powers to administer fines of up to $100,000 for a first offence and up to $500,000 for a subsequent offence for more serious violations. These new fines will be in force over the coming days.
 
A gathering is any event or assembling that brings people together in person, in a single room or single space at the same time.  Click here for restrictions on Mass Gatherings as outlined by the Government of Alberta.
 
You can submit a complaint to AHS public health inspectors if you are concerned an establishment is not following the orders under the public health emergency, such as:
  • a business that was ordered to close but remains open, or
  • a business operating above the 50-person capacity
