In light of COVID-19 and the current federal and provincial governments announcements, I want to inform you of the measures we have taken at NSAC to do our part in preventing further spread of the virus.
- Effective Tuesday, March 17, all of our team members will be able to work from home until further notice.
- While our office is effectively closed, all team members can be contacted by phone or email to respond to the needs of our members, partners and associates.
- We are increasing the number of virtual team meetings to allay fears, ensure that we continue to manage our business appropriately, and react to any changes to federal and provincial recommendations.
Darcelle Graham, Executive Director
Daryl Rex, Research Technician
