Dear Branded supporter,
As you are now likely aware, COVID -19 is a pandemic and poses a significant threat to the health and safety of all Canadians.
The Branded planning committee takes the health and safety of conference attendees very seriously. As such, we have voted to postpone the conference until both the Government of Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada advise that it is safe to host large gatherings.
The Government of Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada note that ‘with no public health interventions, the number of cases of COVID -19 will be higher, and will occur earlier. However, with public health interventions, there will be substantially fewer cases and that the peak number of cases will occur later’. Postponing large events like Branded 2020 is a significant public health intervention that can help reduce the spread of COVID -19 and limit the impact to those who are most vulnerable.
Registration for Branded 2020 will open as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, encourage you to stay connected by providing your name and email so we can send the application form and registration information once they are available.
Since 2013 Branded has provided over $100,000 to support entrepreneurs across the GTA and we will not let COVID -19 stop us now!
Please remember to follow health and safety guidelines so that we can eliminate the COVID -19 threat faster.
Thank you for your continued support of Branded.
