CANS Office Closure & Updates from CANS Programs and Services

CANS Office Closure

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to make its way through the province, CANS staff continue to work remotely. CANS offices in Sydney and Burnside will remain closed the week of June 1, 2020, and in-person services suspended for the time being.

Safety is of the utmost importance to CANS. Our goal is to maintain a safe environment for both CANS staff, members and visitors to our office. We have been monitoring the outbreak for some time and have prepared as best we can to work remotely. That said, this global pandemic marks new territory for all of us. Please understand that there may be delays in CANS services during this time, but we are doing all that we can to keep any issues to a minimum.

How does this impact CANS Services?

During this time, CANS office — including access to CANS Business Centre — will remain closed to all CANS staff, members and guests. Please note that CANS staff are working remotely and all digital services (ie: tender library) are currently active.
