With the concerns here in Manitoba and abroad about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak around the world, we want to update you about how Eco-West Canada (EWC) is responding to this health concern.
It is important to emphasize to our client municipalities and other stakeholders that EWC remains open for business. We remain fully operational and have taken steps to ensure we will be able to continue to carry out our work for you under changing circumstances. We want to assure you that we will continue to manage our daily affairs and ongoing municipal initiatives, and that our team members will continue to be available to connect with you by phone, email, or even video messaging.
As many of you know, EWC’s offices are located at 200-614 Des Meurons St. in St. Boniface. The offices at this location remain open to CDEM and Eco-West Canada employees but will be closed to the public until further notice. As stated above, EWC will continue to provide services for its clients and partners by telephone, teleconference and e-mail only.
To support public health authorities in their efforts to contain the VIDOC-19 outbreak and to ensure the safety of our employees and learners, all EWC in-person meetings and activities, while training sessions for the Business-Climate Initiative (BCI), will be delivered through an on-line webinar format. This includes all on-site training, all events, and all in-person appointments.
We thank you for your trust and understanding and remain hopeful that this situation will be resolved as soon as possible and in the best interest of everyone in our province, the country and abroad.
