UPDATE - Stay-at-Home Order COVID-19

14 January 2021 2:23 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Dear CPIO Members and Industry Stakeholders,

As many of you know, Queen’s Park announced further emergency measures to combat the ongoing threat from COVID-19, that came into effect today, Thursday, January 14, 2021.  In light of these new measures, we sought the legal opinion of the CPIO legal counsel, Ross Dunsmore of Dunsmore Law, for any changes that may affect our industry.  Ross has assured us that his original opinion still stands and that there is no change to our status as an “essential service”.  Please see below:

The CPIO recommends that, during the Stay-at-Home Order, all PI Agency owners issue letters to their employees outlining their status as an essential worker.  This should ease the process if/when an employee is challenged.

We will endeavour to continue to keep our membership, and the industry at large, informed of the latest developments.

Stay safe!

On behalf of your CPIO Board of Directors,

James Meadway
