The City of Edmonton has adopted the Government of Alberta’s Restrictions Exemption Program.

Everyone age 12 (plus 10 weeks) and older visiting a City recreation centre, arena or attraction is required to provide proof of COVID-19 full vaccination, proof of a medical exemption, or a recent negative test result. Only QR codes or First Nation or Canadian Armed Forces vaccine records will be accepted. For more information, see

Masks and face coverings are also required indoors at all City facilities. For more, see

We ask everyone visiting a facility to arrive at facilities a little earlier than normal. Please be patient with City staff as they review proper documentation. The City thanks everyone for their ongoing cooperation as we continue to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program and work through our response to COVID-19

Located in the historic Prince of Wales Armouries Heritage Centre, the City of Edmonton Archives is a public research facility housing civic government and private records of enduring significance that document Edmonton's history.

We are open by appointment only. To make an appointment, please call 780-496-5989.
