We know that church and charity leaders often wear multiple hats and provide immeasurable value to their organizations and those they serve. We also know that it can be tough to keep up with the rapidly changing COVID-19 orders, restrictions, limitations and regulations!
To help you navigate some of the key information you might be looking for, we have compiled a reference chart below. It lists mass gathering restrictions, potential fines, essential workplace/service orders, key provincial information sites, emergency declarations and the legislation granting authority for those emergency declarations.
Each province and territory is included. Your church or charity will need to abide by the applicable provincial guidelines and orders (even if you are federally incorporated).
We will endeavour to keep this updated with the latest information.
Church and charity leaders are invited to share how they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic within their organization in our online community forum, The Green: COVID-19 Response Room.
