I hope you have had a chance to sit down and enjoy the March/April issue of Water Canada, which focuses on issues around water infrastructure in Canada. Perhaps you have had even more time to read it this time around thanks to the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in today.

Like every other business in Canada, we are taking the necessary precautions to keep our team, our loved ones, our colleagues, and everyone else in society safe. That’s why, as of Friday, March 13, we sent our team home to work remotely until such time that it is safe for everyone to return to the office.

While we are away from our office in Toronto, we will continue to provide the most up-to-date information on the water industry in Canada. We will report on any news stories that arise, as we know so many of our readers are continuing to work diligently to keep the water and wastewater flowing during these challenging times.

We also appreciate that there will be a lot of good that will come from this, presenting us with the best practices we will need to appreciate in order to know best to approach another pandemic should one ever arise on Canadian soil. We want to hear your stories, but now and after the crisis has been overcome, about how your company is managing your team and your projects in these extraordinary circumstances.

In the meantime, we will continue to press forward with the information you expect from us, including not just any daily news headlines, but also the feature articles presenting the best practices and thought leadership that help you do your job to the best of your ability. We will do our best to keep you up-to-date on the changes to the event calendar that are being announced on a daily basis. And our May/June issue, scheduled to be released in early May, will be released on schedule.

Thank you to everyone in the industry who continue to work diligently to keep the water flowing, providing us with safe drinking water and wastewater systems. We encourage all of you to continue to follow the direction provided by Canada’s Chief Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam.

It’s business as usual for us.

Stay safe everyone.
