This message from CFMWS leadership is intended for all CFOne members.
The continued spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Canada and around the world has understandably raised concerns for you and your families. The well-being of our members and employees is of the deepest concern to us. Your safety remains our top priority as this situation continues to evolve.
We are taking important steps to help you stay protected.
We are continuing to track the situation closely. To ensure that our practices align with the latest recommendations we are following the latest guidance from local, provincial and federal health authorities, including the Public Health Agency of Canada.
We are ready to serve you.
We understand your concerns during this time, so we’re taking extra steps to keep our spaces safe for you and our employees.

They can provide you with information about hours of operation and closures. You may experience slower than usual response times due to a high volume of calls. Rest assured that we are committed to providing you with the best service we can as we navigate the current situation.
In times like these, we can all work together to ensure our community stays strong. Social distancing does not have to mean isolation from our community. We can care and connect with one another in other ways such as through video chats, phone and texting. Please use your local public health resources and engage us at CFMWS by the methods listed above. When we act as one CAF community we can be incredibly strong.
We’re ready to support your welfare through these trying times.
