COVID-19 INFORMATION

As the rate of COVID-19 infection continues to rise throughout the world and the province, we wanted to provide members a specific page on the website that provides links to the most current and factual information as it pertains to Canada and Ontario.

In addition, we have created a specific messaging forum page for member agencies to share available information and best practices with one another. The link for the forum can be found by clicking here. NOTE: You will require your membership Log In information in order to participate in the forum. Should you require any assistance with Member Log-in, please feel free to contact administrative support at administrativesupport@oasisonline.ca

If there is a website or resource that you do not see listed here, please let us know and we will add it!
