Dear business partner,
Since the beginning of this crisis, several of our subsidiaries were already pursuing their activities related to essential sectors such as agriculture, defence, industrial and medical. As of now, in accordance with the Government of Quebec's policies, we will gradually resume all our operations while continuing to comply with the required protective measures.
Please also note that most of our teams will continue to work remotely in the coming weeks. Teleworking allows us to reduce the number of employees physically present in our facilities.
In the same vein, visits to our subsidiaries are restricted until further notice. The visit of any external person is only allowed for essential matters, which could not be done in any other way. To join our teams, please prioritize videoconferencing options or telephone calls. If you need to make deliveries to our facilities, please ask for instructions in advance at each of our subsidiaries.
The measures in place, while exceptional, will ensure the health and safety of our employees, families and business partners. Everything we do is aimed to ensure the health and safety of our community. We believe it is important to participate in the collective effort so that the activities considered essential to the society can continue as normally as possible despite the circumstances.
We therefore ask for your cooperation and contribution to help us maintain operations in these essential areas. We all rely on our respective efforts and we believe that collaboration between all business partners will be key to overcoming the current challenges.
President and Chief Operating Officer
