Our commitment in this era of COVID-19

As a provider to essential services, we remain open to support our clients and audiences across Canada.

The impact of COVID-19 has brought escalating changes and restrictions in how we live, interact and conduct business. We have not experienced anything like this in our lifetime and hopefully never will again.

This is an extremely challenging time for our associates, customers and community members, who are all at the core of our business. As a provider to vital services including grocery, pharmaceutical and telecommunications, the government has mandated our continued work in creating, sharing and printing content. We remain open to serve you, and are committed to our values more than ever.

We are here to help you navigate your business needs through this crisis, and when you feel the time is right, to assist you and your teams in communicating your brand story and deepening critical relationships with your audiences, customers and communities.

Our associates remain connected and engaged in supporting our clients and audiences across Canada. We have select core teams coming into our print plants and studios under strict new guidelines to ensure their safety and well-being. And our media teams remain more dedicated than ever to delivering quality, trusted journalism that informs and inspires Canadians in these uncertain times. We are also leveraging the reach of our media brands to provide our non-profit Community Partners with advertising space to help raise awareness about their community-building, life-saving initiatives.

We continue to monitor developments of the coronavirus pandemic at the local, provincial and federal levels and to follow all directions of the Public Health Agency of Canada. We will continue to keep you updated on any changes.

With flexibility, creativity and caring for each other, we can and will emerge from this unprecedented time.

Thank you to our clients and audiences for your support. We are thinking of you, your teams and your families. Be safe, look out for each other, and we hope you are somehow enjoying some small unexpected joys in all of this, such as time with family, a good book or an inspiring opportunity to help someone in need.

Sincerely,
Tony Gagliano, CEO,
and all your friends at SJC
