Are businesses in the Town of Banff enforcing this bylaw?

No. Municipal Enforcement is responsible for educating the public about this new bylaw and for enforcing the bylaw if there is an instance of education with non-compliance. Fines are $150. Businesses may have their own policies for managing mask use on their property, but they are not required to enforce the Town’s bylaw and should avoid confrontation. Businesses are required to post the notice about the bylaw requirement. Businesses are not required, but are welcome to share information about the bylaw requirements and exemptions.
