The past two months have presented an unprecedented challenge to our community. The COVID-19 pandemic and the response to this public health crisis have challenged our province on a scale that we have not experienced before. I know this hasn’t been an easy time for Albertans, but our government is here to support you. The Government of Alberta has enacted a $7.7 billion comprehensive response to protect the safety, security and economic interests of Albertans amidst the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. We have taken such aggressive public health measures because Albertans’ health is our top priority. We must do everything we can to protect Albertans during this pandemic, especially our most vulnerable.
I would encourage you to visit the websites below for general information and financial supports.

It’s in these times of crisis when we see the best in Albertans. I personally want to commend all of you who have stepped up to support those who are vulnerable to COVID-19, as well as those who have been deeply affected by the economic crisis. I want to thank all of the frontline workers who have braved themselves to assist us. Thank you to neighbors lending a hand to one another, and to my constituents for staying at home and for practicing social distancing. Your continued cooperation and participation are needed to combat the covid19 crisis and flatten the curve.
