In partnership with the provincial craft councils of the Atlantic Provinces, Craft Alliance Atlantic Association has developed a set of guidelines for craft businesses preparing to re-open for business. This document gives general advice to members of the craft community for businesses such as craft studios, craft shops and galleries preparing to re-open. This document does not constitute any form rules or regulations, and is an interpretation of the rules as set out by public health directives at the time of publication, and is subject to change.


Craft Sector Recovery Guidelines








The most important aspect of re-opening businesses is to follow your provincial Public Health Directives. It is important to note that in Atlantic Canada, all 4 Atlantic provinces are at different phases in the COVID-19 recovery, so COVID recovery will be different in each province and region. The changes to public health directives are ongoing, so as recovery phases change, the requirements for social distancing, mask wearing, group gathering limits and other measures will also change. Businesses should stay informed by following updates on their respective provincial government’s COVID-19 information web pages.
