The purpose of this notice is to ensure that our employees health, safety and well-being is a priority. We recognize that we may need to provide our employees with alternative working arrangements to accommodate the need for self-isolation, support for immediate family members diagnosed with COVID-19, or childcare needs due to school closures.

We will make every effort possible to ensure that our employees remain accessible and we will continue to provide support to member First Nations.

As of March 13, 2020, the following directives are provided to all of our employees until further notice:

  1. All employee travel is cancelled.
  2. All work-related meetings, gatherings, and events are to be cancelled or postponed if they cannot be delivered by videoconference or teleconference.

  4. These are interim and temporary measures due to the circumstances beyond our control.
