August 2021 MLA Report – Calgary Glenmore – Whitney Issik

Calgary Glenmore

Dear Constituents,

Alberta is Open! July 1 was a monumental day in Alberta. Albertans are now free to gather indoors and outdoors, businesses can operate at full capacity, and people can safely get back to doing all the activities they enjoy. Now is the time to safely pivot from strict restrictions to vaccine protection to keep people safe. Albertans can continue to do their part by getting fully vaccinated.

Thanks to Albertans as of June 29, 2021, 72.8% of those 12+ have rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated. An incredible 42.2% of Albertans 12+ have also received their second dose with 4,332,883 doses administered across the province. If you have not received your first or second dose, please do so in order to ensure that Alberta is Open for Summer and Open for Good!

Following the announcement of the first prizes awarded in the Open for Summer Lottery, now is a better time than ever to get your second dose and enter for your chance to win the remaining two $1 million jackpots plus many other once in a lifetime prizes. Registration for the August draw closes August 24, 2021, and registration for the September draw will close September 23, 2021.

We want your input! The Child and Youth Well-Being Review panel, co-chaired by Minister of Children’s Services Hon. Rebecca Schulz and MLA Matt Jones will work to understand the full scope of the psychological, social, educational, and physical impacts resulting from and related to the COVID-19 pandemic on children and youth. The panel will learn from researchers, educators, health-care professionals, and mental health experts, as well as Alberta parents and kids. If you are interested in participating in a round table on this topic, please contact [email protected] or 403-216-5421.

Sincerely yours,

Whitney Issik
