A message from our Region 4 office:

I just wanted to reach out to you to let you know that if you are aware of any of your members applying to the Hardship Fund, please encourage them to send applications electronically to myself at slaird@opseu.org as we are working remotely and this will be the quickest way for us to get the applications to the committee for processing.  If electronic is not an option, applications can be sent through Canada Post; however, all mail is being redirected to OPSEU Head Office and therefore there may be a delay in processing applications.

Please note, all Hardship Fund Applications should be sent to Alison at apeters@opseu.org effective April 20, 2020.
