VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province has launched a COVID-19 safety certificate program called BSAFE.

BSAFE, BC Safety Assured For Everyone, is for workers in the tourism and hospitality sectors to increase customer confidence as businesses begin to open in accordance with BC’s Restart Plan.

“This program will empower employees, visitors, and communities to have confidence a business is following health and safety best practices as we work to slowly reopen while following the rules and putting an end to COVID-19 restrictions in B.C.,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport. “The program was a call to action from the Tourism Task Force to clearly demonstrate to visitors that B.C. is a safe place to travel. BSAFE supports our restart and recovery efforts as we look forward to exploring our province again very soon.”

The Province designated $640,000 to develop the program. Any organizations or businesses that participate in the training program will receive a decal so visitors and customers can identify that BSAFE training has been completed.
