Members will consider several pieces of legislation on issues ranging from municipal emergency preparedness to providing increased support to survivors of human trafficking.
“While government, the public and our enforcement agencies are rightly focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, we must continue our work to enhance protections for vulnerable Albertans – such as survivors of human trafficking. We also want to ensure that mobile home tenants are placed on equal footing with other renters in terms of dispute resolution, to give them added confidence in the stability of their housing status during this difficult time. We are also better supporting municipal operations regarding COVID-19 by making further changes to the Emergency Management Act. ”
Government will be working to ensure that MLAs are doing all they can to adhere to the best practices outlined by the chief medical officer of health while in the chamber. The health and safety of members and all Albertans remains our highest priority.
