EHC Announcement on COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Edmonton Heritage Council wishes to emphasize that our foremost concern is the health and safety of our community. Any EHC-supported events or initiatives compelled to cancel as a result of these concerns will not be negatively impacted in terms of access to current or future grant funding.

We will continue to update you if and when changes are made to EHC’s own events and deadlines.

At this point, organizations, individuals, and institutions are being asked to cancel all gatherings in Alberta with more than 250 people in order to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, while events with more than 50 attendees including international participants or other high-risk groups like seniors are also to be cancelled. Mayor Don Iveson and other City of Edmonton officials recently addressed the media regarding further response on the municipal level.
