As hoteliers adapt to operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are committed to providing a safe environment for staff and guests.

What Is the AHLA Safe Accommodation Promise (ASAP)?

AHLA, the official safety association for Alberta hotels, has developed the ASAP designation to help hotels:

  1. Understand their responsibility to provide a safe environment for guests and staff, and what this entails.
  2. Provide assurance to guests and staff that their property is a safe place to stay or work.

By meeting ASAP requirements and earning the right to display the ASAP logo and certificate, your hotel is making a promise to staff and guests to prioritize their health & safety.

The ASAP program is based on current Alberta legislation and public health guidance. The standards will be updated as new or additional information becomes available.

How Do I Apply for the ASAP Designation?

1. Review the ASAP guide to see if your property meets all the standards.

This step is optional, but highly recommended to help you prepare for your self-declaration.

If your property meets the criteria for the ASAP designation, you will receive:

    • The 2021 ASAP logo that you can display on your emails and your hotel’s website. You may link this logo to this web page, so that anyone with questions about the program can learn more.
    • A certificate you can print, sign, and display to staff and guests to show that your hotel has made the promise to prioritize their health & safety.
