Rapid Test Kits
The Chamber has partnered with the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Chambers of Commerce for a one-of-a-kind partnership to provide complimentary COVID-19 rapid antigen testing kits to small and medium-sized businesses.
This program provides access to rapid test kits for businesses with employees that often enter the workplace. By frequently testing employees, businesses can stop outbreaks before they happen, keeping employees and customers safe.
Once your application is approved, the Chamber will provide you with further instructions on how and when to pick-up your kits and the necessary weekly reporting.
- All businesses and not-for-profits are eligible to apply to participate in this rapid testing program. A Chamber membership is not required.
- Rapid testing kits are supplied free of charge to all accepted applicants.
- Weekly reporting is required to be submitted to the Edmonton Chamber, stating the number of tests performed and the associated results.
- These tests are designed to reduce the risk of asymptomatic transmission and should not be administered to those with any COVID-19 symptoms!
- Each business will be required to set up an official COVID-19 screening program and testing protocol for all employees partaking in rapid testing.

Repaying the balance of the loan on or before December 31, 2022 will result in loan forgiveness of 33 percent (up to $20,000).
The CEBA Application Period Has Been Extended - Applicants now have until June 30, 2021 to apply for a $60,000 CEBA loan or the $20,000 expansion at their financial institution.
If you haven’t received a CEBA loan yet, you will be able to apply for the full $60,000 at a financial institution where you have a business bank account, if you are eligible.
