We know that COVID-19 is affecting our sector and those we serve.

I want to take a moment to let you, our members, know that sector leaders across the country have been working together to send a common message to the government: COVID-19 is impacting our sector too! Our government needs to include charities and non-profits in its response to the crisis at hand. A letter has been sent to the Prime Minister requesting urgent support for our sector. AFP Canada, along with non-profits and charities from across our sector, have endorsed this letter.

If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to advocate! Please take a minute to ADD YOUR VOICE by sending a letter to your MP. Imagine Canada has created a form that only takes a minute to complete. Once you have sent your MP a letter, please share this message with your network. The time for us to act is now as the government is making important decisions that will have an impact on our sector.

On behalf of the AFP Greater Toronto Chapter Government Relations Committee, Board of Directors and AFP Canada, thank you for the work that you do and for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Penny Connors, BA, BComm, CRM, CAE
Executive Director, AFP Greater Toronto Chapter
