The updated chart is now available here:

http://EMCPA Orders and other Regs.INQDDO.July13.20

Bill 195, the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020, was introduced on July 7, 2020. The bill, if enacted, will continue those emergency orders made under sections 7.0.2 and 7.1 of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. Unlike orders under the EMCPA, continued orders will have a duration of 30 days and may be extended for 30 days. Certain continued orders will not be subject to amendment under the new Act, when proclaimed in force.
