ISGW Message About Office Closure

Dear Clients,

To support Canada's efforts to reduce the chance of spreading the COVID-19 infection we have made the necessary decision to close the office entirely. All staff are expected to work from home.

Effective March 20, 2020, ISGW will be CLOSED  to the general public and staff will be working at home to serve you the best we can.

Coronavirus Information for ISGW Clients

Everyone should continue to think ahead about the actions that they can take to stay healthy and prevent the spread of any illness, espectially respiratory infections.

Stay home if you are sick. Encourage those who you know are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms.
