Our government is violating your rights under both the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Bill of Rights. Cases are before the courts but the law moves slowly. Joining the Open for Business Coalition will put you in touch with other Alberta business owners so we can all stand together to defend our rights and our businesses.
We promote our Coalition businesses to our members (if you choose public registration), and work to provide you with resources and support to continue to operate your business to the greatest extent possible while protecting you from government actions that would shut down your business completely.
'Open for Business Coalition' Registration Form
Public vs. Private Registration
We completely understand that some of you may be concerned that registering for the Open for Business Coalition may make you a target. If you choose public registration by not taking either of the private options we will promote your business to our members only (must be logged in to view the directory). You can also choose from one of two private registration options, in which case your business information will not be displayed, not even to our members.
You must be logged in to register your business.

AHS and Bylaw Guide
How to defend your rights
We have prepared this document to provide you with responses to AHS and bylaw harassment. These responses may provide some measure of protection against fines, and will inform you of your rights. The document is updated regularly as we acquire new information.
Mask Exemptions Letter
This document has been prepared by Lawyers4Truth and covers how businesses that deny service to those who have mask exemptions are in violation of Human Rights. It also addresses the myth that the Trespass Act allows them to pick and choose whom they serve.
Mask Exemption Poster
Post your defence
Mask exemptions are guaranteed by both the Alberta Mask Bylaw and by the Alberta Human Rights Commission. If AHS or bylaw harasses you for not forcing your customers or employees to wear a mask, our Guide above provides the response you should give, while the poster shows the public that denying service is a violation of Human Rights.
