We are facing significant challenges and it is a difficult time for communities in Canada, the United States and the rest of the world.
Dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic is now our number one priority. We are working around the clock to remain as responsive as possible. Our focus is on the well-being of our employees and to be there for you -- our customers and brokers -- when you need us.
The decisions we are taking will continue to be guided by public health authorities in Canada and the United States. However, our perspective is that it is better to be extra cautious and vigilant during these times.
We are committed to sharing as much information as possible with employees, customers and brokers in the days and weeks ahead.
We have many employees who are now working from home and we have a strong business continuity plan in place. We will take every step necessary to protect employees and customers while ensuring that our business remains operational.
We are reviewing the impact of the pandemic and we will take a problem-solving approach as we work through new situations and deal with the questions that may come our way.
While the financial markets are extremely volatile right now, our operations and capital position are strong. We are well-positioned to continue to serve our customers and brokers and support communities through this stressful period.
This is a difficult time for all but serves as a reminder of why Intact exists – to help people.
I can assure you that the entire Intact team has been working very hard. We will get through this by working together with our communities, and with governments and public health authorities.
We value these relationships and we are here to help. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out through one of the channels included here .
