Update on Essential Services: COVID-19

On Monday, March 23, the provincial governments of Ontario and Quebec made similar announcements calling for the temporary closure of all non-essential businesses. We have heard your concerns and hope to be able to provide some clarification in this rapidly changing landscape.

Starting Wednesday, March 25 all non-essential businesses in the two provinces are ordered to close for a period of at least 14 days. Chit Chats will continue to operate as normal during this time.

Additionally, all businesses can continue to engage in e-commerce and teleworking.

Chit Chats and other businesses that provide transportation and logistics services have been deemed essential by both governments. For a full list of essential services in each province, please reference the provincial government websites below:

We are currently hard at work on more ways to support you and your businesses as the situation evolves. Please continue to check our blog for the latest information.
