Dear CPIO Members:

To our valued members, the effects COVID-19 has had on the economy, society and industry has been crippling and unparalleled. We understand that the last six weeks have been met with confusion, financial stress, personal stress and uncertainty; please know that you are not alone in this fight. The CPIO is here to ensure that our members are informed and educated with respect to the government assistance programs that have been made available to us. With that being said, the CPIO would like to take this opportunity to keep you informed with how we are working to bring awareness and education to you in the coming weeks.

On Wednesday, May 6, 2020, the CPIO will host a webinar to ensure that our members are informed on government relief and the necessary steps to apply for both agency members and individual members. As all of you know, it will take time before we are able to gather again to meet and provide education for you through our seminars and conferences. Therefore, we will be offering free online webinars covering a variety of topics that pertain to our industry, commencing on May 20, 2020 with a new webinar every 2 weeks thereafter. Information concerning these webinars will be posted on our website soon!

To ensure the concerns of our members are addressed we have provided five questions that we would like you to answer to assist us with this. Please send us your feedback to (email address) and these topics will be part of the May 6 discussion.

1- During COVID 19, what has been the biggest issue facing you individually or as a business.

2 - Have you applied for and been able to access Government grants successfully? If not successful, what were the reasons?

3 - Are you experiencing labour or contract issues?

4 - What can the CPIO do to assist you at this time?

5 - Would you be interested in on-line learning seminars hosted by CPIO, if so, what topics would be of most interest to you?

Please know that your support has been unmatched and valued and we thank you. As we orchestrate through this unprecedented time in our history, our 'new-normal' will take time to adjust to but we will endure.

We wish you and your families all the best.



Time: May 6, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
