resource image

The Public Health Emergencies Governance Review Panel will review the legislation that guided Alberta’s response to COVID-19 and recommend changes to improve the handling of future public health emergencies for Albertans.

Experts and members of the public are invited to share their input on what amendments to legislation could better equip the province to cope with future public health emergencies.

This work will help ensure government has the best possible approach to responding to public health emergencies while minimizing unintended harms to the economy, health, mental and social well-being, and civil liberties of Albertans.
