Friends of Kananaskis – Members and Volunteers,
In light of the Province issuing a ‘stop work order’ on volunteer projects, we wanted to clarify how this applies to the Friends of Kananaskis and our projects.
The success of Friends of Kananaskis’ programs is dependent on our volunteers and we are committed first and foremost to ensuring that all our projects prioritize the safety and well-being of participants. Currently, we are working to make sure that our policies and procedures are in line with the recently updated framework for Occupational Health & Safety Standards shared with us from Alberta Environment & Parks (AEP).
Our programs will resume once our Occupational Health and Safety processes and procedures are approved by AEP. This review is currently underway, and we expect to have our stop work order lifted by May 24.
If you have any questions, please me 403-678-5593.
