Alberta Government ordering system

  • Many challenges have been identified with the Alberta government PPE ordering system: https://xnet.gov.ab.ca/ppe
  • While orders should not be cancelled, limitations on supplies have impacted the ability to fulfill orders. This is expected to be an ongoing issue. Particularly as PPE is diverted to the health care sector.
  • Farmers can continue to place orders but are encouraged to explore other options to obtain PPE.
  • Orders that have been submitted may be put on hold pending availability of the product, but will not be cancelled.
  • Retail suppliers will continue to get a supply from the government on a limited basis.
