Industry organization's study gives a perspective of how the Canadian market is affected.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created some challenging and unprecedented times for the world. The Canadian Elevator Contractors Association (CECA) has been actively monitoring the situation as it unfolds and has been working closely with our members to provide as much assistance as possible as our industry faces daily uncertainty and new regulations throughout the country. CECA and our members have been working diligently, both behind the scenes to stay connected with government officials and to get valuable information out to our members.

CECA established a Basecamp networking site as a portal to host documentation and up-to-date news for our members to easily access. This includes COVID-19 resources, new employment benefits, regulations and sick leave information and forms, as well as provincial and national news bulletins. The site also allows members to openly discuss any problems they have encountered due to the coronavirus, as well as ask for advice on workplace situations that have occurred.

To further support our members, CECA developed an anonymous survey to monitor how COVID-19 is affecting business practices and how companies are responding to the challenges. We are pleased to share the results with ELEVATOR WORLD's readers

CECA would like to extend our best to all our fellow industry friends and wish them good health in these challenging times.
