On April 27, 2020, the Ontario government released A framework for reopening our province (the “Framework”), outlining the government’s gradual three-stage regional approach to reopen businesses, services and public spaces, by balancing the needs of people and organizations, including charities and not-for-profits (“NFPs”), while at the same time ensuring that public health and workplace safety remains a top priority by following the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario’s recommendations. The Framework consists of the emergency orders passed as regulations under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. This Bulletin provides an overview of Stage 2 of the Framework, including the application of workplace health and safety legislation and privacy law, which will be of relevance to charities and NFPs.

For the balance of this Bulletin, please see Charity & NFP Law Bulletin No. 474.
