OECM Statement on COVID-19

March 17, 2020

OECM is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and we are taking the necessary steps to manage and respond to the evolving circumstances, while following the guidance of Ontario’s Ministry of Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), the Government of Canada’s lead for COVID-19.

With our employee’s health and well-being as our top priority, we have implemented immediate measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, while maintaining business continuity and supporting our customers and supplier partners while we navigate this challenging environment.

  • We are encouraging all OECM employees to work remotely from home, with staff in the office, only as necessary.
  • All in-person events, workshops and meetings have been suspended until further notice and we are no longer holding group meetings at our office at 2 Lansing Square.
  • All meetings will be held as teleconference calls or webinars or will be postponed until suitable alternative arrangements can be made.
  • We are encouraging employees to diligently follow the prevention recommendations from health authorities, such as proper hand washing and social distancing measures.

We would like to assure our customers, supplier partners and stakeholders that we continue to be fully operational during this time. Our staff continue to be available, via email and telephone, to support our customers in Ontario’s education sector, broader public sector, municipalities and other not-for-profit organizations. OECM is also committed to supporting our supplier partners who are working to ensure prompt responses to our customer’s product and service needs.

Customers are reminded to contact our dedicated Customer Support team at OECM Customer Support or 1-844-OECM-900 (1-844-632-6900) Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm for any inquiries.

We are committed to working with all of our stakeholders to “flatten the curve” and we will continue to update you on our measures as events evolve in order to support you in every way we can.

Customers and supplier partners seeking more information about the virus should visit: Health Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Toronto Public Health.
