COVID-19 Resources for the Sign Industry

OSA knows that at this time of great uncertainty you need as much up-to-date information as possible as it pertains to your business. We have been in constant contact with municipal and provincial agencies to ensure that your concerns are made known to representatives and to share with you the information gathered. Your association is here for you and will be updating this page as new information becomes available as we continue to advocate on your behalf.

For those businesses struggling financially at this time, we have compiled information on Work Sharing, a government program providing financial assistance to companies and their employees. Program eligibility has been opened more broadly to provide support to companies feeling the impact of COVID-19 restrictions.

Can your business help? Check the Ontario Together: help fight Coronavirus page to see if your company can help. Ventilators, masks and other Personal Protective Equipment are in great need.
