Focus on safety, health and wellness


I know we’re all feeling the impact of the increased case count in our region. Thank you for continuing to stay informed and follow the direction from Public Health.

As restrictions and guidance continue to evolve, our business units are adapting operations to safely meet the needs of residents. I know this is particularly challenging for our colleagues deemed essential under the current state of emergency, who have continued to report to worksites throughout the pandemic. Thank you for your commitment to public service during such challenging times.

Given the critical importance of safety, health and wellness, I want to highlight two week-long observances that begin next week. Follow the links below to learn how these events will be safely acknowledged this year:

While these topics are a priority for us year-round, these weeks are an important reminder to always keep safety, health and wellness top of mind.

Thank you for doing your part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Kind regards, amitiés, wela’lioq,


Jacques Dubé
