UPDATE ON COVID-19
As the world continues to grapple with the uncertainty surrounding the spreading of COVID-19 and its growing impact, we want to assure you that the health and safety of our applicants and our people is our top priority and we are monitoring the situation closely. In light of the ongoing public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, and in response to the directive by the Canadian Government we have redesigned key elements of our Fast 50 program. We are proceeding with the digital application portion, but suspending all in-person events and interviews (interviews will be held virtually) for the time being. We will keep the Fast 50 community apprised, and adjust our program as the national health guidance is updated.
