INFORMATION FOR COMMUNITIES REGARDING COVID-19
WE’RE HERE FOR YOU
The Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation understands the importance of supporting each other and promoting health in First Nations communities to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Your safety, as well as the safety of our employees, is of the utmost importance to us. We are closely following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
Our offices remain open for staff who need to be there (e.g. finance), however we are also offering flexible work arrangements allowing staff to work remotely, from the comfort and safety of their own homes, as an extra precaution. Our IT systems are set up in such a way that all staff still have access to OFNTSC work files, emails, as well as phones.
