Zoo permit - eligibility
76(1)  In this section, "zoo standards" means those portions of the 
document entitled "Government of Alberta Standards for Zoos in 
Alberta" and prepared by the Alberta Zoo Standards Committee 
established jointly by the Department and the Department 
responsible for agriculture, that
	(a)	are contained in Section II, entitled "Standards Within

zoo", contained in Appendix 4 in Section IVD,
of that document, which portions of that full document, as 
originally issued, form an attachment to the Wildlife (Zoo 
Standards Application) Amendment Regulation, as those portions 
are amended to the relevant time.
(2)  The Minister adopts the zoo standards as regulations and, for 
the purposes of construing the Act and this Regulation, other than 
subsection (3), the zoo standards are deemed to be a part of this 
Regulation.
(3)  In the event of any inconsistency between the zoo standards 
and this Regulation, the latter prevails.
(4)  The Minister may issue a zoo permit to an adult resident, a 
business corporation or a society
	(a)	that proposes to operate a zoo in accordance with a zoo 
plan approved in accordance with section 78, and
	(b)	that, and whose zoo, fully meet all applicable laws and 
all additional requirements of the zoo standards.
(5)  Notwithstanding subsection (4)(b), that clause does not apply

the zoo in question immediately before the end of 
March 2006,
	(b)	the applicant has identified to the Minister in the 
application that that zoo does not fully meet the zoo 
standards,
	(c)	the zoo plan contains details as to those aspects of the 
zoo standards that have not yet been met and explains 
how and when each specific standard in respect of 
which there is such non-compliance will be met, and
	(d)	the Minister is satisfied with the zoo plan and has issued 
a written document, in this section referred to as a 
"variance", that sets out all relaxations from the zoo 
standards that, for the period stated in the variance, are 
being allowed. 
(6)  A variance may contain any terms and conditions that the 
Minister considers appropriate.
(7)  The Minister may not issue more than one variance to any one 
permit holder.
(8)  If the period referred to in subsection (5)(d) expires without 
the terms and conditions of the variance having been met, the zoo 
permit is automatically cancelled unless the Minister, on a written 
application being made prior to the expiration of that period setting 
out the circumstances, considers that there is a reasonable excuse 
for the non-compliance and extends that period in writing.

3   The following is added after section 141:
Zoo standards
141.1(1)  The holder of a zoo permit shall ensure that the zoo 
standards, as defined in section 76(1), are fully complied with.
(2)  Without limiting the applicability of any other law, the 
reference to zoo standards in subsection (1) does not include any 
standard that merely has the effect of reiterating another law.
(3)  Subsection (1) does not apply, having regard to a specific 
standard, to the extent that a variance has been issued to the permit 
holder under section 76(5)(d) with respect to that standard.

4   Section 2, to the extent that it inserts section 76(5) to (8), 
and section 3, to the extent that it inserts section 141.1(3), 
into the Wildlife Regulation (AR 143/97) cease to have any

5   Sections 1 to 3 come into force on April 1, 2006 except 
that, for the purposes of processing applications before 
April 1, 2006 for zoo permits that will take effect on or after 
April 1, 2006, they come into force at the earliest time when
