The Emergency Management Act was amended on March 20 in the Alberta Legislature to allow local and provincial states of emergency to exist at the same time, helping communities and the province effectively respond to disasters.

The amendments provide clarity and improve the coordination of local and provincial response efforts in the event of emergencies and disasters, including wildfires, floods and pandemics.

Additional amendments were made on April 7, 2020 to address concerns and suggestions raised by Alberta municipalities and will help the province effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The additional amendments include:

  • Providing clear language that it is an offence to be non-compliant with orders made under states of local or provincial emergency;
  • Clarifying that the minister has the power to modify a state of emergency without terminating it;
  • Clarifying that a provincially declared state of emergency can be for a pandemic in general, and not just for pandemic influenza.
