Delivering on short, medium, and long term outcomes so we can emerge on our front foot and ready to lead in a globalized, connected world.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a considerable global challenge that is and will continue to impact all Canadians, one way or another. Our way of life has been fundamentally disrupted.
We understand the stress and continued uncertainty looking towards the next few weeks and months, for both the physical and economic health of our community. We know that all Canadians – everyday citizens, business owners, and our elected representatives – can meet this challenge. In order to ensure this, we ask policymakers to consider the following outcomes.
Delivering on these outcomes will keep us safe, ensure our Canadian economy continues to function, and allow us to emerge from this outbreak on our front foot and ready to lead in a globalized, connected world.
