Update on the Coronavirus Pandemic
We, at Manitoba Aerospace, want to assure our members and other stakeholders that we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Manitoba and Canada.
We have decided to take the precautionary step of suspending all face to face meetings and events for the next six (6) weeks. We will be evaluating the situation on an on-going basis and will stay in-touch with you as the circumstances continue to evolve. Our priority is the health and safety of all.
Manitoba Aerospace will continue to carry on our regular business operations but, for now, our connections will be made via email, text, internet, or telephone which includes conference calls. Based on advice from local health experts via the Provincial Government, we are suspending all training programs until the current conditions change.
Supports to business:
As stated in my email last Friday, I have been asked to be a member of a committee that was established by the Provincial Government to help monitor how COVID-19 is impacting local industry. This committee will meet twice a week until the pandemic is over. If you have any concerns/issues about how your business is being affected, please call me at 204-272-2952 or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also including some web links to various government departments that are offering supports to the Canadian business community during the pandemic.
