How WSPS is responding to COVID-19 (March 25)

Mar 25, 2020

To help in the global effort to flatten the curve of COVID-19 infection, WSPS has implemented the following changes to business activity, effective immediately:

  • All training courses and consulting activities are suspended until further notice. If you have a course coming up, contact WSPS Customer Care or call 1-877-494-WSPS (9777).
  • Our 2020 Partners in Prevention Conference & Trade Show, which was to take place April 28-29 in Mississauga, has been cancelled. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our regional conferences this fall.
  • WSPS Safety Connection events for March will be rescheduled. If you are interested in April or May events, please check back at a later date.
  • WSPS offices at the Centre for Health and Safety Innovation (Mississauga) and Ottawa will be closed until further notice.

We are continually monitoring the situation. Check back to wsps.ca for updates.

Although we’re not available face-to-face at present, we are working remotely to serve you.

Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time. Stay Safe!
