Consult gathering limitations across the provinces

As provinces begin to further open up across Canada, the size of groups for indoor and outdoor public and private gatherings are being adjusted.To assist you in determining if you are able to host a training session, and under what conditions, please consult the updated group numbers 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 the 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.
