As we navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to reach out to our clients directly. AWE is committed to caring for the health and well-being of our customers and staff during these unprecedented times. As such, we are following the strategies mandated by the Public Health Agency of Canada, as well as provincial and territorial Departments of Health. These strategies include:

  • Actively encouraging sick employees to stay home
  • Emphasizing cough and sneeze etiquette and hand hygiene
  • Routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace.
  • Practicing social distancing in the workplace
  • Remote work planning should the need arise

Many of our scheduled expeditions have been postponed or cancelled as a result of the current public health crisis. We are presently formulating a strategy to adapt some of our wilderness-based half-day and day programs to comply with the physical distancing directives mandated by health authorities. More information regarding these modifications are forthcoming and will be disseminated on our website and social media platforms. As being in nature is one of the activities promoted by PHAC and regional health authorities we are excited to offer clients the opportunity to vacation at home this summer, and to support local businesses which clearly have been hit hard this year. We appreciate your continued support of tourism in Canada and we invite your feedback and questions. Changes may occur from day to day as information is shared by our government and health organizations. If there are any significant changes, we will take to our website and social media to provide updates. We appreciate your understanding and patience should this cause any interruptions to our team or business as usual
