Reaching out during uncertain times

Friends, we hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well during this unprecedented time in our lives.

We understand that many of you may be struggling and need support. As part of the nonprofit community, we are accustomed to putting the needs of others above our own, however, we want to make sure that you have the resources you need to look after yourself, first.

The Canadian Mental Health Association has linked to a number of resources that may be helpful. You can find them by clicking HERE.

We also want to provide you with links to resources you may need to help keep your organization, staff, and clients served during this time.

By clicking the link below, you’ll be directed to a list of resources that contains COVID-19 information:

  • How to understand many of the federal and provincial emergency relief benefits
  • Articles on Leadership
  • HR, EI & payroll
  • Finance resources

  • Technology & working virtually
  • Risk management
  • and even a link to a fun ‘social distancing festive’
