Extending the Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act until JUNE 2

Published on May 12, 2020

On the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and with the approval of the Ontario legislature, the government has extended the Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act until June 2. This allows the government to continue to use every tool at our disposal to protect the health and safety of all Ontarians during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The extension of the provincial declaration of emergency ensures that important protection measures taken to-date remain in place. It also supports our government’s ability to quickly implement and enforce additional emergency orders.   

Nothing is more important than protecting the health and well-being of Ontarians.

Since the government first learned of COVID-19, Ontario has actively monitored the situation and continues to act decisively to contain the spread of this new virus.
