In order to do our part to limit the spread and impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our member manufacturing firms and to the broader Canadian population, EMC is postponing all in-person events until further notice. EMC will continue to take precautionary measures and adjust our operations as this ever-changing situation unfolds.

EMC also recognizes the importance of maintaining our high level of resources, services and support for our manufacturers, as you continue your efforts in growing your capacity and maximizing productivity. 

As a result, all EMC staff and our online infrastructure are at your disposal and in place should you require access to digital resources, virtual, training or other support during this time:

  • Updated event schedules (including additional virtual events) will be communicated soon;
  • EMC Field Service Advisors across Canada remain active and available to assist our members and partners as usual;
  • EMC Programs and Resources remain active and available and can be accessed by members via teleconference, web-meeting and online;

Simply contact your FSA, Program Manager or EMC’s head office should you need any assistance.

Please be assured we are making every effort to ensure this distressing situation has a minimal impact on the quality of service and support that the EMC team provides. We will continue to seek information from health experts across Canada regarding the coronavirus, and we will keep you informed as pertinent information is received.

We greatly value our relationship with you, so please do not hesitate to reach out to your EMC contact if you have any questions or if we can be of assistance in any way.
