Update: essential construction defined

April 19, 2021

The Ontario government has finally updated its definition of essential construction under its latest stay-at-home order.

The order, which came into effect shortly after midnight on April 17, places stricter restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19. Construction, which has largely been unaffected by provincial measures since the end of the spring 2020 lockdown, is one of those activities that has been curtailed under the new order.
