The COVID-19 pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization in March 2020 with the virus confirmed to have reached Canada January 27, 2020. The pandemic created difficulties and uncertainties for families and communities. We continue to work closely with our staff, Directors, and service providers to ensure that the information and assets of our members will be safeguarded, no matter the circumstance.
The health and well-being of our members and staff is of the utmost concern to us. We are strongly encouraging our staff and all our members and their families to protect themselves and others by following the guidelines set out by the Public Health Agency of Canada https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection/awareness-resources.html.
Our office remains open and fully operational, with some staff working remotely to continue to serve you without interruption. Similarly, the service providers to Tradex and the Tradex Funds, our portfolio managers and our third-party fund providers have made a seamless transition to alternative work arrangements.
To protect your health and that of our staff, we encourage you to continue to communicate with us by telephone or e-mail. If necessary, in-person meetings continue to be available while our office is open, subject to distancing and mask-wearing requirements. While the official Tradex Equity Fund limited AGM will again be available for telephone participation, we are working with our Portfolio Managers to provide webcast updates this year.
