COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR LED OUTDOOR ACTIVITY


Outdoor programs have a duty to care for their participants and must implement effective COVID-19 adaptations. To facilitate this process, the following guidelines and supporting documentation are posted on this website. These documents come from a diversity of sources and each program will have to refer to and use the guidelines that are most relevant to their particular context.

Note that provincial and regional governments hold the final say regarding the offering of specific activities. The following documents are to be used in a context where programs are allowed to operate in their area. 

Note that for the exception of the COVID-19 Principles and Practices for Led Outdoor Activity, the OCC does not officially endorse any documents listed below. If you have concerns about the validity of the information provided in a document, please contact the publishing organization directly.
