COVID-19 Updates for RAC Members

This page will be updated regularly. Last updated  September 20, 2021 at 3:00pm CT. 

As many provinces are starting to ease their restrictions on businesses, RAC will notify members once it is possible to resume their practice, according to their location.

RAC remains committed to the health and well-being of our entire community.

To this, all members are bound to follow their respective municipal, provincial, and territorial guidelines to safely return to work. After reviewing your governments’ guidelines, please understand it is your decision whether you feel comfortable and prepared to return to work.

If a province or territory is recommending measures above those detailed in RAC’s Standards of Practice, the government’s guidelines supersede. In other words, if you are found in violation of government guidelines, you will also be in breach with the Association.

If there is no link for your provincial or territorial back to work guidelines, your province/territory has not published any, yet.
