Consult gathering limitations across the provinces

All provinces across Canada have set up restrictions limiting the size of groups for indoor and outdoor public and private gatherings. To assist you in determining if you are able to host a training session, and under what conditions, please consult the links below. 

Note that some of these measures may not reflect specific guidelines related to training in classrooms. The CPA is continuing to look into more specific information as it relates to classroom training for our industry.

In all cases, a distance of two metres must be maintained at any type of gathering. In most provinces, face masks are recommended where social distancing cannot be maintained.

Please refer to CPA's Best practices recommended during COVID-19 - Measures for Reopening your Retail Operations, produced to assist you in hosting a training session during COVID-19.
