          For the province of Alberta (NEW updates!):

          It is important to note that The Government of Alberta has announced important legislation changes concerning regulated first aid training courses for workers approved under the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Code. All accredited first aid training agencies in Alberta must comply with name changes in Part 11 of the OHS Code to align with Canadian Standards Association (CSA) naming recommendations. This requirement comes into effect on March 31, 2023.
