CEO COVID-19 Information

CEO COVID-19 Statement | Wednesday March 18 2020

Consulting Engineers of Ontario would like to take a moment to update our membership, industry stakeholders and partners about our response to COVID-19.

At CEO we are focusing on the health and safety of our community, while continuing to work together to support our members and stakeholders. Preparedness has allowed CEO to continue operations without interruptions while our staff work remotely. We have made every effort to ensure this situation does not impact the service and support our staff and volunteers are providing. In order to achieve this, we have made the following modifications to events and in-person programming:

  • All CEO staff is currently practicing social distancing and working remotely.
  • CEO Chapter meetings are to be conducted virtually or postponed.
  • CEO Chapter in-person events are being postponed until May 31 2020. Note that this date may be adjusted as the situation evolves.
  • CEO Standing and Liaison Committee meetings are being conducted virtually or postponed as appropriate.

The May 1st OCEA Gala will not take place as originally scheduled. We are announcing that we will be launching a YouTube television 'premiere' of the OCEA Gala. Details will follow! All registrations will be fully refunded.

CEO STAFF

Our physical office is currently closed, however, you can still reach staff by email or phone. We are continuing our normal operating hours of Monday - Friday 8:30AM-4:30PM. All association services, including our Rapid Response Service, are available and operating. We encourage our volunteers to reach out to [email protected] if they need any assistance in adjusting volunteer committee and chapter meetings or events.

We are monitoring the advice of our local health officials on a daily and hourly basis. We will continue to provide updates as needed as the situation evolves. All updates can be found on our website at www.ceo.on.ca/COVID19.

We want to thank everyone for their cooperation during these extraordinary times. Please remember that social distancing does not mean disconnected. Stay safe and connected by calling friends, family and coworkers to check in. We are here for our members if you need to reach us.
