Miskanawah COVID-19 Re-opening Q and A

Here at Miskanawah, the health, safety, and overall wellness of our communities is of utmost importance. With the new Alberta COVID-19 restrictions, we have come up with a few strategies while also prioritizing safety. Below are some important questions we considered when thinking about the safety of our staff and the families, children, and individuals we serve.
Will Miskanawah be returning to in-person programming and activities?
Currently, Miskanawah has changed all in-person programs to online only. All online activities can be found in our Event Calendar or on our Social Media.  In-person capacity restrictions may apply.  Please reach out to the event facilitator regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
Will Miskanawah be allowing visits on the Land and in the Lodge?
Staff and clients are now welcome to partake in both Land and Lodge activities. Children under the age of 12 are permitted on the Land but are currently not permitted to enter the Lodge. Registration for Land and Lodge activities is now open and arrangements can be made with Jacqueline Shaw at:
When I visit, will I be required to wear a mask and go through a COVID-19 screening-process?
As per Alberta's provincial health restrictions, masks are now mandatory. All staff, clients, and visitors must wear a mask, maintain distance, and continue proper hand-hygiene. Disposable masks are available at our front desk. Proof of vaccinations is not necessary.
All staff, clients, and visitors will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms at our front desk.
