April 1 Update
Our employees remain reachable through videoconferencing, email and telephone
Since keeping our employees and partners safe remains our main priority, we have been proactive in asking the majority of our employees to work from home, as of March 16. We have also quickly responded and respected the directives of the public health authorities in Quebec and in Ontario. This resulted in the closing of our offices and laboratories. While similar orders have not been announced in British Columbia, the public health officer for B. C. stated that all employees should work from home when at all possible. Out of a sense of caution for the health and safety of our employees and understanding of the seriousness of the situation, we chose to apply our work-from-home policy to B. C. employees as well.
FPInnovations is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and its impact across our organization and our industry. Our number one priority remains our employees’ and partners’ safety.
Our second priority is service to our Members. We have therefore taken special measures to ensure that our research and services remain available to you while respecting any measures you may have implemented at your operations.
Research Information Sharing and Feedback (RISF) and Strategic and Tactical Advisory Committee (STAC) Meeting Presentations will continue as planned, however, they will be hosted via videoconferencing.
