COVID-19 emerged in December 2019 and subsequently spread worldwide, leading to the World Health Organization’s declaration of a COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020. To date, Canadian federal and provincial governments and businesses have mandated various measures, including: travel restrictions, restrictions on public gatherings, stay-at-home orders and advisories, and the quarantine of people who may have been exposed to the virus.

The Company’s operation continue, but in response to the guidance from government, and in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, effective March 18, 2020, staff moved to a work from home model with very limited office presence.

While revenues in the period subsequent to February 29, 2020 have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, the Company’s financial position and working capital remain strong. The Company will be applying for the Federal payroll subsidy and job-sharing benefits to manage operating costs. The Company continues to monitor developments, including government regulations and recommendations, to assess future actions.
