With the ever-changing global situation currently underway in light of COVID-19, the way many
Canadian companies operate is being impacted.
Several efforts to control and mitigate the spread of the virus are currently in place, resulting in travel restrictions, border restrictions, businesses temporarily closing down, and other measures. This could have further implications on business development activities as the situation continues to evolve.

Many companies and organizations, along with governments, are rising to the occasion and providing
several free resources and supports for businesses during these difficult times.
