The Ontario government has extended until Tuesday, June 30th all existing emergency orders made under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The orders were set to expire this Friday (June 19).
On June 2, the Ontario legislature extended the province’s state of emergency for another 30 days until June 30. Under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, emergency orders must be renewed every two weeks to remain in force.
Existing orders and be removed and new ones created at any time during a state of emergency. For example, on June 11 the government issued a new emergency order defining which businesses can reopen under stage two of the province’s reopening, as well as the public health units to which the order applies.
Although the emergency orders remain in place until the end of the month, the government will be reviewing each one to determine when and if they can safely be adjusted or lifted as part of the province’s framework to safely reopen the province.
