藍海應變措施

自今年2019年底/2020年初以來,藍海國際教育持續監控新冠肺炎疫情發展。為免除學生及家長的恐慌,盡量減少未經核實的消息傳播,我們甚少在社交媒體轉發疫情資訊。

即便如此,為了維護藍海學生的健康,我們加拿大總公司曾經提供了免費乾洗手、少量口罩給於在加找不到資源的學生;並因應政府防疫,我們亦減少了許多實體聚會活動,減少學生在外暴露的風險。

3/18起為配合聯邦政府及卑斯省政府的加強防疫措施,加拿大總公司將暫時轉為線上諮詢,進出辦公室採預約制;台灣分公司則維持正常營運。 5/8 加拿大總公司已恢復上班,同學們可預約前來諮詢。

希望不僅藍海的學生、家長、朋友們能夠平安渡過此次疫情,全球各地的人們都能夠儘早平安地度過這次危機。

Dear CAEL/CELPIP Network Member,

We hope you are well and adapting to the new normal as we fight to plank the curve of COVID19. And we want you to know that we’re still here for you.

Our support to you remains the same, and we will continue to provide you with all of the assistance that you have come to expect from us.

Paragon is committed to protecting the health and safety of our test takers, employees, and test centre personnel. We have been closely following updates from health authorities and feel that the most appropriate action to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Canada and the United States is to suspend all testing for CELPIP, CAEL, and LPI in those two countries starting on March 18, 2020. We anticipate resuming testing on April 17, 2020.
In addition, testing continues to be suspended in United Arab Emirates, Philippines, India, and China, in line with the directives of local authorities. It is anticipated testing in United Arab Emirates will resume after April 7, 2020, in the Philippines on April 14, 2020, and in India and China as soon as local restrictions are removed.

As new information is available, we will make sure to update you immediately.

Dear Valued Partners,

Greetings from the English Language Centre, University of Victoria

I hope you are well and staying healthy and safe during these challenging times. I wanted to write and update you on the situation in Victoria Canada and to advise you on upcoming programs at the English Language Centre, University of Victoria.

In Canada, the number of cases of COVID-19 has increased and the government is taking strict measures to contain the spread of the virus. In Victoria, we have ended all face-to-face teaching at the university. People are being asked to work from home and self-isolate. All public establishments are closed, and all gatherings of more than 50 people have been cancelled. Moreover, the government has closed borders to international travellers and we are expecting flight cancelations soon. We are hopeful that with these measures the spread of the virus will decrease and that things will get back to normal soon.

Looking at the trajectory of other countries who seem to have had some success, we are hoping classes will start to resume sometime in the near future. For now, out of an abundance of caution, we are canceling Program 3 (May 25 – June 26).

鑒於某些國家情況有改善,我們希望能盡快恢復到校上課。目前學校已取消2020/05/25-06/26的課程。

We are asking partners who plan to come on or after June 29 to plan as usual to but not to financially commit to booking flights until closer to the program start dates. We will update you at the end of April and will hopefully have a clearer idea of what we can expect for the summer.

如果有學生計畫7月初之後來就讀,建議靠近出發日期前再訂購。我們會於4月底前與各位更新資訊,讓各位對暑期課程有比較明朗的計畫。

I would also like to inform you that ELC is in the process of developing on-line programs and we hope to start to make them available in the next few months. We will send you an update on on-line programs soon.

目前學校正在開發線上課程,希望能於未來幾個月內上線。有任何線上課程相關資訊的更新都會再提供。

I hope you, your colleagues and families are all staying well and that the effects of this virus do not impact you too much. Please take good care of yourselves in these difficult times.

Dear value partners,
Greeting from VanWest College.
感謝您們的支持與體諒,您們都辛苦了!由於目前 COVID-19 疫情持續蔓延,為確保學生的安全,VanWest College 將會持續依照政府、省份與城市公布之相關規範變動來協助與制定因應對策,並且持續回報給您與學生們。以下為目前的學校與政府制度更新,請務必詳閱更新資訊,若有任何疑問與需求也請隨時與我聯繫。謝謝!

Dear Partners,

Yesterday the Government of Canada announced the closure of its borders to travellers who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents. In light of this and our move to online classes for the next 2 weeks, we’d like to provide you with some additional information.

How is ILSC supporting students during this period of online delivery?

ILSC’s advisors and managers are available at our schools in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal to support all students and to answer their questions.

How will the online classes work?

Students at both ILSC and Greystone College began their online classes today. This is a short-term solution for the delivery of classes, while we support your students and protect them, faculty and staff from the spread of COVD-19. Greystone College Montreal students will be given a two week break from their studies and missed classes will be made up at a later date, however they can continue to access learning material via their online Moodle platform.

This week language classes are being offered 3 hours each day between 9am and 12pm. As of March 23rd, classes will be offered 4 hours per day (20 hours per week). Through application of the Zoom platform ILSC students are taught by our experienced teachers and can expect the same high levels of professionalism to which you and they are accustomed.

Greystone College classes are being delivered online via Moodle during the regular study schedule. The Moodle platform is familiar to all students and has been used by Greystone College for some time.

The ILSC academic and technology teams have worked intensively to bring our transformative learning experience quickly online for both ILSC and Greystone College students.

Students from outside Canada wishing to postpone or cancel

As a result of the current travel restrictions on international students from entering Canada, ILSC and Greystone College requires students scheduled to arrive over the next 30 days to postpone their studies to a later date.

Existing students who wish to cancel their studies

ILSC will follow our published cancelation and refund policies (outlined in our Application forms https://agent.ilsc.com/public/search/?kw=2020materials ). In addition and in light of the situation, we will offer a non-cash voucher for unused study weeks not covered by the cash refund. This voucher is non-transferable and may be redeemed within the next 12 months for studies at any time.

Students who choose not to take the online lessons can opt to take a break and to extend their classes for two weeks free of charge at the end of their stay. Additional accommodation fees may apply.

As always, ILSC’s sales and registrations teams are available to assist you and your students with changes to study and travel plans.

Chris Nolan – VP Sales & Marketing

Dear Agents and Partners,

We understand the recent situations caused by COVID-19 could be stressful for students, parents and agents, and want to thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We would like to ensure you stay informed, and appreciate you sharing the following information with your students.

VCC’s Response to COVID-19

  • Refer to the VCC COVID-19 FAQ page to learn what changes are being made by VCC to follow the recommendations provided by the Provincial Health Officer.
  • Face-to-face learning is suspended, however VCC will be offering alternative modes of learning, and instructors will be reaching out to current VCC students directly to provide options.
  • Please note that our office remains open, and continues to support prospective and current international students via phone, email, online/web meetings and drop-in advising.

Post-Graduation Work Permit eligibility

  • According to IRCC, students’ Post-Graduation Work Permit eligibility will not be affected by online course delivery due to COVID-19.

Spring/Summer 2020: Program Seats Opened Up

Effective March 18, 2020, Canada is barring entry to most travellers who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Accepted students who anticipated to begin in Spring/Summer 2020 will likely defer or cancel, therefore program seats have now opened up.

  • Please encourage students who are already in Canada and have a valid study permit to apply to Spring/Summer 2020.
  • Available programs include: Cosmetology Diploma, Post-Degree Diplomas (Business Management Diploma, Canadian Business Management), and other diploma programs.

o Please expect more seats to open up as we receive more deferral and cancellation requests due to the travel ban. More updates will be posted on IE Availability Page in the next few days.

Dear Partner,

We would like to update you on specific contingencies applicable to LAB Montréal and Vancouver. The health, safety and well-being of our students, teachers and staff continues to be our number one priority. As such, LAB Montréal has suspended classes from March 16 and LAB Vancouver will follow from March 18, 2020.

LAB蒙特婁從3月16日起停課,LAB溫哥華將從2020年3月18日起停課。
Online Live Course Offerings until March 27, 2020
3/27前,學校將改為線上課程形式

To ensure students can continue their studies, both campuses will offer live virtual classes. As part of the LCI Education Network, a pioneer in e-learning, our language schools are well set-up to offer students a functional and efficient online learning environment.

As of March 17, LAB Montréal is offering students live virtual English and French classes. The campus is closed for classes.

As of March 18, LAB Vancouver is offering students live virtual English classes. The campus is closed for classes.

Our online course offerings will give students a unique opportunity to engage in real-time language learning with their regular teacher, their regular peers and in the level they tested in upon arrival. Students are offered the same number of hours and focus on the specific course content they selected for off-line classes. Further details are communicated to students directly at the campus. This option is available to students who haven’t started their course as well whether they are in- country or still abroad: as usual, they will take the online Versant placement test before arrival, have a virtual speaking test on their intake day and join online classes onwards.

最新改期、退費標準 Temporary Booking Policies

Students opting out of online live courses are subject to the following:

出發前取消cancelling before arrival: 免收額外費用no penalties

改期至6/1前開課 postponing start date to start before June 1, 2020: 免收額外費用 no penalties

改期至6/1後開課 postponing start date to start after June 1, 2020: 免收額外費用 + 免費加贈1週課程 no penalties and an extra free week of tuition

要求先暫停課程,直到線上課程提供 requesting a study break until off-line classes are offered: 免收額外費用 no penalties (視簽證狀態要求而定subject to visa status requirements)

終止課程 terminating a course booking: 未使用學費週數抵免至2020年以後的日期 credit of unused tuition weeks to a later date in 2020

終止課程並退費 terminating a course booking with refund request: 依據加拿大政府退費標準(課程超過1/3不予退款)the normal refund calculation applies

Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to ensure that the transition is smooth and that classes can continue. We are convinced that this remote solution will be beneficial, not only to help prevent the spread of the virus, but also to preserve the health of students and staff, without affecting your studies too much. Thank you for your collaboration in an unprecedented and rapidly changing global situation.

Dear Students and Partners:

VGC International College is watching the COVID-19 situation closely. As we are based in British Columbia, the situation is currently not as serious as it is in Ontario but is becoming more concerning daily. Public schools remain open and the provincial government has advised we do the same but take precautions as the threat still remains low.

Although the British Columbia government and health authorities state that it is still safe and there is no reason to close the school, we have taken the decision to take our classes online starting Monday, March 23.
At present we will be doing online classes for two weeks until April 6. However, it is important to note that this may change with the current situation and students and partners should subscribe to our Instagram or Facebook for any changes that may happen.

We will run courses as usual this week until Thursday, March 19. We will be closed on Friday for the transition online.

3/18前照常到校上課,3/19學校停課一天,為轉換為線上課程準備

Furthermore, with the best interests of our students and staff in mind we have decided to cancel all activities and graduation ceremonies until further notice.

考慮到我們的學生和員工的最大利益,我們決定取消所有活動和畢業典禮,直到另行通知。

As the Canadian government will not be accepting any further flights to Canada, all future students have the choice of postponing, canceling or taking our online courses.

由於加拿大政府將不再允許飛往加拿大的任何航班,因此所有未來的學生都可以選擇延後,取消或參加我們的在線課程。

We should note that all of our online courses are government (PTIB) approved and follow the same high-standard we have with our face-to-face classes.

所有的在線課程均已獲得政府(PTIB)的認可,並遵循與面授課程相同的高標準

I want to thank our teachers and staff who have pulled together like a true team to get through this tough time.
I am particularly proud of our students whose resolve remains strong under strained circumstances and who continue to show calm during this time. Over the next few weeks our counsellors will be reaching out to you to check-in and making sure you are OK. We will continue to take care of our students as though they were our own family.

I am proud to belong to a resilient school culture that leads in these hard times.
Sincerely,

Dominic Walton
Executive Director

所有學生在接下來的兩週內(3月16日至27日)待在家裡。從3月17日星期二開始,我們將提供線上課程,直到衛生所不再認為需要實行預防措施。

因應COVID-19新型冠狀病毒事件,自2020/3/172020/3/20多倫多校區即將關閉,並自2020/3/232020/4/3將課程調整至線上課程進行。

UMC視學校全體學生與教職員的健康安全為第一要務,近期受到COVID-19新型冠狀病毒的影響,安大略省政府目前已經決定至2020年4月6日,關閉所有公立中小學,以及取消多倫多市許多重大群聚活動,以減緩COVID-19病毒傳播。因此,UMC語言學校多倫多校區決定於接下來的2 (323日至43) 停止校園授課,所有學校活動、社團等皆會往後延期或取消,在此期間,為了確保學生學習進度不受影響,學校決定將所有的課程移至線上學習系統 Schoology,以及與授課老師透過網路連線方式進行教學,學生可透過手機或筆電於寄宿家庭/宿舍,或家中,與老師進行在線學習。

我們由衷感謝全體師生的配合以及各位的諒解,我們也誠摯希望所有人都能平安健康地度過這個非常時期,4月6日起,UMC語言學校-多倫多校區預計將恢復正常運作。另特此聲明,這段期間進行線上課程安排並非代表UMC全體師生為感染COVID-19的高危險群,此舉僅因配合加拿大政府以及安大略省政府預防COVID-19感染擴散的風險,因此UMC一同配合相關單位實行關閉校園,並進行網課教學。在這段期間,所有學生皆須遵循公立衛生局發布的指示,避免不必要的外出行為,更須避開人群聚集的場所,在每日早上9:00-下午3:30正常上下課時間內,皆須準時參與線上授課,並同在校學習一般,完成所有課程指派作業。

323 ()起至 4 3 (),為了確保學生學習進度不受影響,所有課程將會移至線上學習系統 Schoology,以及與授課老師透過網路會議方式進行教學,學生須於每天上課日 (週一至週五 早上9:00-下午3:30) 連線至線上學習系統 Schoology,並參與每一節線上課堂,與老師進行在線學習,並準時繳交作業,學生須準時/提前登入系統、參與課堂討論,出缺席率一樣會被計算且紀錄於學校系統 (QuickSchool),如未於授課時間內連線至系統進行線上學習,學生將會收到出缺席警告通知,嚴重可能導致無法晉級,請務必留意。

 

自3月23日 (一) 各門課老師將會透過email寄發線上學習系統 Schoology的邀請信,請所有學生特別注意,如您尚未登錄線上學習系統 Schoology,請立即登錄並進入課程頁面,各科老師會將連線至線上教學的方式以及連結公布在課程頁面中。如有任何問題,請隨時聯繫課堂老師或台灣學生顧問。Schoology以及Google Meet可使用手機、平板電腦或筆電簡易連結,並皆適用於Android 以及iOS系統。

UMC一直盡力配合政府相關單位,並偕同全體師生一同度過這個非常時期,除了確保學生學習進度不受影響,UMC學生的身心健康狀態也為學校非常重視的一環,如學生在這段期間因COVID-19新冠病毒事件感到焦慮或不安,請務必透過email、電話、即時訊息,甚至預約面談時間,聯繫學校guidance或台灣學生顧問。在這段期間 (316 起至 4 3 )UMC仍會有校方人員駐點,學生仍可於上課期間 (週一至週五 早上9:00-下午3:30) 與台灣顧問預約時間諮詢。

 

*如學生有任何發燒、咳嗽、呼吸困難或任何感冒症狀,請避免前往學校,並撥打24小時免費醫療專線Telehealth Ontario: 1-866-797-0000,或多倫多公共衛生局 416-338-7600,將會有專業醫護人員與您通話,並協助您了解您的狀況,進行相關處理措施。Telehealth Ontario專線為24小時專線,並可要求中文翻譯服務。

全體師生一同遵循以下預防措施,將感染風險降到最低:

  • 勤用肥皂和水清潔手部 (至少20秒) 或 使用酒精類洗手液
  • 避免未清潔的手部接觸眼、鼻、口
  • 打噴嚏或咳嗽需用紙巾掩住口鼻;如沒有紙巾,請用手肘遮掩口鼻
  • 勤清潔常用物品、桌面等等
  • 維持健康作息,包含健康飲食習慣、規律運動和充足睡眠,提升自體免疫力
  • 避免與感冒患者近距離接觸

這些看似簡單的動作,卻是最有效保護自己和他人的方法。

UMC再次重申,本校視全體師生的健康安全為第一要務,我們會持續關注疫情,並會配合多倫多公共衛生局以及加拿大政府進行必要防疫措施,如您有任何問題或疑慮,歡迎與本校聯繫。

Canadian Language Learning College (CLLC) takes the health of its students, staff, and community seriously.

Since we learned of the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have been monitoring the Govemment of Canada’s health updates on the virus to ensure vre are taking all necessary steps to protect our students and statf.

We also continue to monitor the response of Nova Scotia and Ontario’s health ministries.

The current status in Canada of COVID-19 is that it has closed its borders to non-residents. We will be ready to welcome new students the moment Canada re-opens its borders. We are offering a free deferral for students to delay their studies by 12 months.

The Government of Canada is asking people to social distance themselves and self-isolate as much as possible.

The Government has asked that all non essential services be cancelled and employees work from home if able. The overallrisk in Canada currently remains low, however we must take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.

CLLC has closed its campuses Monday, March 16th, 2020 and Tuesday, March 17th, 2020. At this time, our team is preparing for online classes to begin on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, We are a family, CLLC will continue to support our students and agents during this time.

Updates to our students and agents will be frequent and detailed over the coming days and weeks.

Those who have traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days and who develop a fever with a temperature of 38″C or higher, and or cough, should call 811. Do not present yourself at a hospital or COVID-19 testing site without contacting 811 first.

Dear Friends,

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin Roosevelt

There is a lot of anxiety around the world at the moment but ILAC continues to be positive during this time. We know that the COVID-19 virus will pass and life will soon get back to normal. However, it is through social contact that the virus spreads.

As a result, we are telling students to stay home for two weeks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, in accordance with the Canadian government advisory. All classes at ILAC Toronto and Vancouver will be held online from March 16th until March 30th. All additional activities, including orientations and trips, will be postponed until further notice.

目前多倫多、溫哥華校區,將從3/16-3/30 改為線上課程,所有校內外活動、旅行都延期,直到近一步通知。

Our teachers are ready and enthusiastic to teach and engage students online from the comfort of their homes. Administrative staff will be working flexible hours to take care of their children and families but will continue to support students and agents.

This decision is not based on fear but rather the responsibility and sensibility to protect the health and safety of all our students, teachers, homestays and staff. Instructions from the Public Health Agency of Canada state that anyone that comes to Canada will be asked to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.

Franklin Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” During this time we will lead with strength and resilience as a company to protect our students and our community.

Staying calm and respectful and avoiding social interactions, practicing social distancing and following proper health precautions are the best ways to prevent the spread of the virus. As we all know, Canada is one of the safest places to be in the world, with an excellent health care system that is well-prepared and citizens who are behaving responsibly.

Today Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced that Canada is closing its borders to all
foreign travellers to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

ILAC recommends that all students planning to come to Canada from overseas should postpone their

Dear partners:
Over the past several weeks, global concern over Covid 19 (widely called “Coronavirus” in the world media) and its spread to several areas around the world has certainly captured the attention of society.

In the study abroad industry, we are well aware of the effects this spread creates many challenges for us
over the coming weeks and months.

The situation continues to evolve rapidly and we must always be ready to act based on changes to the situation. We will continue to monitor updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the British Columbia Center for Disease Control (BCCDC) on how to treat the concern towards the virus for our students and staff. Some of the extra measures that we are imposing are as follows:
• Increased use of disinfectant in the school including daily wiping of surfaces in classrooms and door handles
• Hand sanitizer stations installed at entrances and in student lounge.
• Notices within the school on proper hygiene techniques and measures each individual can take to
limit the spread of the virus.
• Limiting student arrivals from infected areas. This started with students from Wuhan and its surrounding area of China. As the virus spreads to other regions with serious outbreaks, we will request students from these areas to either postpone or cancel their study program.
• Sending pre-arrival questionnaires to all students regarding possible exposure to the virus.
Students who may have been in close contact with the virus will be asked to remain in their home countries.
We encourage everyone to follow the practices outlined by the WHO and CDC regarding reducing the chance of both catching and spreading the Coronavirus:
• Avoid close contact with people who are clearly sick (coughing, sneezing, feverish)
• Avoid touching your own eyes, nose and mouth
• Stay home when you are feeling sick
• Clean and disinfect objects that are frequently touched.
• Wash your hands with soap and water often and for at least 20 seconds at a time. If soap and water are not readily available use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

An update to IELTS testing in Canada


Dear Partners,

The IELTS Partners continue to monitor the development of Covid-19 around the world and are keeping a close eye on government mandates in every country where our staff, test-takers, and stakeholders are affected.

We are following the advice of the World Health Organisation to help protect everyone’s safety.

In Ontario, British Columbia, PEI, and Alberta, following the declaration of a state of emergency and the closure of private and public schools, as well as the decision to move college and university classes online, the IELTS test has been suspended in the majority of venues in these provinces.

IELTS Test Centres that must close for the time being will be contacting test takers to let them know of the cancellation and refund the fees.

In other provinces, some test centres remain open for the time being. All centres have implemented additional precautions to help protect the health and well-being of our staff and test-takers. We will continue monitoring the situation by province and take the necessary decisions.

If your clients or students are looking to book a test in Canada, please contact the local test centre to find out if testing is available.

We will continue monitoring the situation in Canada and around the world and update you of any new developments via our website www.ielts.org.

Support for you and our test takers

We understand this is a challenging time for our test takers and our organisations. We are working closely with students and the sector to help provide solutions.

We are launching an online tool, with genuine IELTS content, timed to match an IELTS test, to help address test shortages in areas where testing is suspended. More information will be available on this in the coming weeks. https://www.ielts.org/news/2020/an-update-from-ielts

We are also running online preparation support sessions to help students connect with our experts online.
Please rest assured that the IELTS Partners will be ready to provide extra test dates and locations worldwide once the Covid-19 situation is stable and it is safe to resume testing in those locations that have been affected.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us,
 
IELTS Canada Team

Your Health, Safety & Dreams Are Important to Us

We understand English-language testing is an important part of your journey to permanent residency, citizenship, and study in Canada. 

As a result of COVID-19 precautions, we have halted a significant volume of testing. Please see below for an update on necessary suspension of testing in Canada and the US, current testing availability in other markets, and our commitment to supporting you during these difficult times with additional free online instruction and reduced study material prices.

Please know that we are also working to ensure that once COVID-19 precautions have been lifted, you will be able to resume your testing schedule.  

Thank you,
The Paragon Team.

COVID-19 Prevention Closures


Paragon is committed to protecting the health and safety of our test takers, employees, and test centre personnel. We have been closely following updates from health authorities and feel that the most appropriate action to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Canada and the United States is to suspend all testing for CELPIP, CAEL, and LPI in those two countries starting on March 18, 2020. We anticipate resuming testing on April 17, 2020.
 

Testing continues to take place in Hong Kong, with additional precautions to protect the health and safety of test takers and test centre personnel. Testing in Chandigarh, India has been cancelled through March 31, and our March 21 test sitting in New Delhi, India has also been cancelled. Because the situation with COVID-19 is evolving rapidly, it is possible that further testing in Hong Kong and India may be temporarily closed on short-notice.
 

In addition, testing continues to be suspended in United Arab Emirates, Philippines, and China, in line with the directives of local authorities. It is anticipated testing in United Arab Emirates will resume after April 7, 2020, in the Philippines on April 14, 2020, and in China as soon as local restrictions are removed.
 

As new information is available, we will make sure to update you immediately.

Test Postponements and Rescheduling

Due to concern for the health and safety of students and staff, TOEFL® test administrations have been postponed in some locations. In each case, the decision to postpone testing has been made in collaboration with country governments, test centers or other partners on the ground.

Rescheduling fees waived

To assist test takers during this time, ETS is waiving all rescheduling fees. If your TOEFL iBT® test appointment is postponed, you will be notified by email and your test will be rescheduled in your account. Check your account and your email regularly to confirm your testing status.

If your TOEFL iBT test appointment is not postponed but you would like to reschedule, you must contact TOEFL Services directly via one of the options below. You cannot reschedule your test in your ETS account without incurring a fee.

As the situation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) quickly evolves, we want to assure you that all of us at Canada Post are doing everything we can to keep our employees, customers and the communities we serve safe.

Following the direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada, we continue to introduce new safety measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Until further notice, these safety measures will now include a change to items that are delivered to the door.

• To help minimize points of close contact in our communities, we will no longer be requesting signatures for any deliveries to the door. This will eliminate the need for scanners and stylus pens to be passed back and forth during the delivery process of these items.

• Instead, where possible, our delivery agents will apply our safe drop process. This means they will leave these items in your mailbox or outside your door if it’s safe to do so. Where it’s not possible to safe drop, our delivery agent will leave a notice card indicating the post office where you can pick up your items by showing proof of identity.

Canada Post will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, and to actively follow the guidance and safety recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

In late January, we enacted our corporate pandemic plan. As part of that plan, we have a dedicated internal team regularly monitoring developments, responding to issues and preparing to make any necessary changes in a responsible manner. So far, there have been no impacts to our operations.

We will let you know about any changes we make to our processes that will help increase the collective safety of our communities. If you have general concerns about the safety of the mail, we would like to assure you that the World Health Organization continues to state that mail and packages are safe to handle, including those from incoming countries.

During this difficult period, as we continue to connect and to proudly serve you, please know that your safety and the safety of our employees remains our top priority.
