Support for a Safe Re-Opening of Canadian Performing Arts Sector


Below are some additional resources that may be helpful to performing arts organizations while creating their reopening plans:

NAC Resources

The below documents were developed by NAC staff to support the reopening of the Centre. They include the NAC’s Pandemic Reopening Safety Plan, a series of health and safety protocols as well as a workplace assessment to ensure necessary physical distancing in our workspaces. Although these documents are specific to the needs of the NAC, we invite you to use them to support and complement the development of your own reopening plans.
