I hope you have had the chance to pick up a copy of our March/April edition of ReNew Canada, which features some excellent information on subject like remote clean energy, transit-oriented development, and financing broadband. Perhaps, based on the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in today, you have actually had more time to check out the magazine than usual.
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 from the coronavirus (COVID-19). 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 public sector infrastructure industry in Canada. We will continue to provide any news stories that arise, as we know so many of our readers are continuing to work diligently to build the nation’s infrastructure despite 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 during the first week of May, will be released on schedule.
Thank you to everyone in the industry who continue to work diligently to build our nation’s infrastructure. We encourage all of you to continue to follow the direction provided by Canada’s Chief Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam.
For us, it’s business as usual, just from a more remote setting than the friendly confines of downtown Toronto.
Stay safe everyone.
Managing Editor, ReNew Canada
