Change in Hours of Operation March 25, 2020
Change in WCA/HCA Hours of Operation
As you’re aware, the Premier ordered that all non-essential workplaces must close. The construction industry, however, has been declared an essential service and continues to operate. The services at the WCA will also continue, but under modified hours, and we have now taken the necessary arrangements to continue our operations with all staff members having the ability to perform most functions from home.
Effective March 26, 2020 we will be modifying our hours of operation as follows:
Monday to Friday ~ Office OPEN from 8:30am to 12:30 pm
Members who require services to be delivered by the WCA such as The Commissioning of Statutory Declarations, picking up CCDC documents, or project prints can expect these services to be available during the morning hours.
For members who visit after hours, please feel free to utilize the “mail shoot” to the right of the front door to drop off your CCDC 9’s for signature, and they will be signed and available for you the following business day morning.
There are conditions when visiting the Association posted at the WCA, and we ask that you please follow these to ensure everyone’s safety. Only one person will be permitted to enter the office at a time, all surfaces will be disinfected after each visitor, and you must remain a minimum of 2 meters away from association staff.
Further, if you’ve been outside Canada in the past 14 days, OR if you’ve had contact with anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or who has tested positive for the virus OR if you have a fever, cough, or are experiencing shortness of breath, please do not come or attempt to enter the building.
Staff will continue to be available to serve our members through this pandemic either by phone or email. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these difficult times. We will continue to update you all with any new information we receive.
