New Provincial Regulations Being Reviewed for City Services Impact

Posted On Saturday April 17, 2021

The Government of Ontario has extended the Stay-at-Home Order and the State of the Emergency to May 5, and announced further province-wide restrictions effective 12:01 am today, Saturday, April 17. The order under the Reopening Ontario Act, which would include the rules for shutdown zones, has been extended to May 20.

The stay-at-home order is an order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, and requires everyone to remain at home except for essential reasons, such as grocery shopping, going to the pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), outdoor exercise or for work that cannot be done remotely.

“We have just received the official regulations from the Ontario Government this morning, and are reviewing them in detail to identify any changes to City services. We will comply with all orders from the provincial government,” said Norm Gale, City Manager. “More specific details on the impact to city services will be available soon.”
