If we are required to close the office for public health reasons, we can assure that we have the ability to work remotely and will do our best to maintain our high level of service.

We are working very closely with our related organizations at ACMA as well as the Canadian Pork Council to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic in the Province, region and nationally.
