AB postsecondary institutions respond to removal of Restriction Exemption Program

Following the Government of Alberta’s removal of the Restriction Exemption Program, AB Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides expressed an “expectation that all of Alberta’s universities, colleges and polytechnics will align their COVID-19 policies and practices with that of Alberta’s Government.” The University of Calgary and Medicine Hat College have each noted that their policies are not a part of the Restriction Exemption Program. UCalgary and Alberta University of the Arts announced that they are not making changes to their COVID-19 policies, while MHC stated it is waiting for sector-specific guidance, with masking and vaccination requirements in place until government directives are provided. The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology is reviewing the public health measure changes, with its current policies remaining in the meantime.
