Alberta’s government will bring in new supports for businesses implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program.
In response to the latest public health actions, government is providing funding to help offset costs of implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) and support training for workers.
REP Implementation Grant
Alberta’s government will soon offer a one-time payment of $2,000 to Alberta small- and medium-sized businesses that are eligible for and choose to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program, requiring proof of vaccination, a negative test result or medical exemption.
Alberta businesses eligible for the REP Implementation Grant can use the funding as they see fit.
Alberta is the first jurisdiction in Canada to offer businesses a payment to offset costs associated with a proof of vaccination program.
It is anticipated that application intake for the payment will be open in the next four to six weeks. More details on the program, including full eligibility criteria, and information on where and how to apply, will be shared once finalized.
