The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts to what have been booming real estate and building industries. Many jobs and most events are currently suspended, postponed, or affected in other ways, though UrbanToronto is still operating at full strength with our team working remotely. As a means to keep the public in the loop about the shutdowns, we’ll be sharing information and status updates from around the industry on a regular basis.
In today’s report: Health Canada authorizes first COVID-19 vaccine, Ontario identifies key groups for distribution of initial COVID-19 vaccines, Ontario Federation of Labour urges all-party support for MPP Sattler’s “Stay Home If You Are Sick Act” Private Members Bill, and more news from the COVID-19 front.
