As cases of the COVID-19 have been confirmed in our region, and because the situation continues to evolve, our office has made the decision to alter our day-to-day operations.

As such, many of our staff members will be working from home to minimize the possibility of exposure.  This may cause a delay in our response to email, fax, and telephone messages. For the most prompt service please email us on or email the contact person you are trying to reach directly. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

We recognize that our members are working tirelessly to help Canada manage this pandemic and support the care of all Canadians.  As your professional association, we will continue to provide support and resources during these trying times.
