The province is strengthening impaired driving laws.
Some of the changes include a 90-day license suspension and mandatory one-year ignition interlock program for drivers found to be criminally impaired.
Criminal impairment is defined as a blood alcohol level over .08, impairment by drugs, or any combination of drugs and alcohol.
There will also be zero tolerance for impairment of drivers in the GDL Program.
GDL drivers found with any amount of alcohol, cannabis, or illegal drugs in their bloodstreams will be subject to a 30-day licence suspension, seven-day vehicle seizure and a lengthened term in the GDL program.
Updates have also been made to Alberta Transportation Safety Board's procedure, including a new limit on the number of reconsiderations the board is required to hear in the absence of new evidence.
Between 2006 and 2015, 1001 people died as a result of alcohol or drug-impaired driving, and more than 15,000 people were injured.
