COVID-19 Update

Updated September 17, 2021

Starting Sept. 20, vaccine-eligible individuals will be required to provide government-issued proof of immunization or a negative privately paid COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours to access a variety of participating social, recreational, and discretionary events and businesses throughout the province.

To enter spaces that are participating in the program, including restaurants, bars, and indoor organized events, people aged 12 and older will be required to show their proof of vaccination, a negative recent test result, or a medical exemption letter from an authorized health professional.

This program does not apply to businesses or entities that need to be accessed for daily living.

Accessing Municipal Facilities

We are not planning to implement a REP program for the Civic Centre, Public Works, and Other Municipal Buildings; these facilities will remain open for in-person services. Masks and physical distancing are required, and plexiglass barriers are in place for everyone's protection.

Accessing Recreational Facilities 

The Town of Canmore will be implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) requiring proof of vaccination or negative test result to continue operating as usual at Elevation Place and at the Canmore Recreation Centre. 

As of Sept. 20, anyone born in 2009 or earlier who enters the Canmore Recreation Centre or Elevation Place will be required to provide proof of vaccination,  a negative PCR or rapid test COVID-19 result taken within 72 hours, or a medical exemption letter. Your personal information is protected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and is collected, used and disclosed only for the purpose of determining your eligibility to enter our recreation facilities.


From Sept. 20 to Oct. 25: proof of a single dose is considered acceptable as long as the dose was given more than 2 weeks before the time of service.
After Oct. 25: proof of double vaccination is required if not already provided.

Masks are also required by all patrons (except for patrons ages 2 and under, and those with medical exceptions) except when engaged in physical activity.

ABTraceTogether App

Download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, a number of improvements have been made, including address privacy concerns, and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

While any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.
