Good news! We (the City) are well on our way to getting the Rose Country Inn site cleaned up—even though it has taken longer than we initially planned. The contractor hopes to get the variance and permit paperwork approved by the Province as early as December 23, 2019, however, it may take longer due to the strict processes in place to ensure the health and safety of the clean-up crew and the general public is protected while removing the asbestos.

If you have additional health concerns related to the Rose Country Inn debris, please contact the local Public Health Inspector at 780.312.7942. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
