The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many of us operate on a day-to-day basis. We have seen the cancellation of events, closing of stores, restaurants and workplaces, and the need for social distancing in order to help control the spread of the virus. Our sector is not immune to all these changes.
We are sharing with you CCIC’s response to this evolving situation:
We have cancelled all in-person gatherings and events until the end of April.
We’re continuing to serve our members and sector by operating virtually and working from home.
We also plan to move forward with all virtual calls with members, unless otherwise specified.
We hope you will join us this Friday for a joint call, where we will receive an update from Global Affairs Canada on their response to COVID-19. See details below.
In these rapidly changing times, we hope you are well and able to keep your families safe.
