On Wednesday, April 21, Minister of Labour and Immigration Jason Copping announced the introduction of paid leave in Alberta for locals who want to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

The leave will be three hours and it applies to both full-time and part-time employees. "Hard-working Albertans want to get the vaccine, but some may not be able to because of their working hours," said Copping, continuing to say that some people may not be able to afford "a loss of pay."
