Diane J. Brisebois, President and CEO of the Retail Council of Canada (RCC) has issued a statement regarding the current situation with COVID-19.
During these challenging times, Retail Council of Canada's (RCC) top priority is ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our retail community.
We are working 24/7 on behalf of all our members and talking to all levels of government and health agencies to ensure Canadians' diverse retail needs are met while keeping everyone safe.
We have cancelled our spring events (Retail Human Resources Conference, Retail Cannabis Forum and Retail Marketing Conference) and have issued full refunds to all who have registered.
STORE 2020 has been rescheduled to September 14-15, 2020 and the Montreal Leaders In Retail Breakfast has also been postponed to later in the year.
RCC will continue to provide ongoing timely updates that relate to your retail operations. We are updating our website daily which we encourage you to visit to get the latest information.
RCC members are also invited to participate in regular calls and webinars where we talk to experts and provide the latest information about COVID-19 and how it applies to retailers.
Members can subscribe to receive notices about these COVID-19 information sessions.
We are clearly all operating amid unique circumstances with rapidly developing information. As COVID-19 evolves, we will continue to find solutions to both "flatten the curve" and manage the outcomes responsibly.
Thank you for your membership and ongoing support. We wish you, your families and colleagues continued and health and safety.
