COVID-19 – CSAE Urges Federal Government to Extend Funding Support to Associations
Yesterday, the Canadian government pledged $1 billion for a comprehensive response package to combat and mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak in Canada. CSAE sent a letter urging the government to include associations in their funding support.
The impact of COVID-19 puts the viability of numerous associations and not-for-profit organizations at risk. Associations and the businesses that support the broader sector rely heavily on meeting and event revenue. The additional implications on staffing, prevention and education may be severe for associations, particularly those with limited resources. The economic impact will be widespread and significant.
CSAE is committed to working together to manage through these challenging times. We encourage association professionals and business partners to share this message to amplify the voice of a vital sector for the Canadian economy.
