As the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy continues to monitor the impact of the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the health and well-being of our supporters, partners and staff remain our top priority.

We are actively following the guidelines established by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Government of Ontario in addition to other health authorities. As such our offices remain closed during this lockdown period and all our staff are now working from home. We have also cancelled any face to face events including workshops and presentations until further notice. Where possible, we will be using technology so that we can continue to share information and support those affected by osteoporosis.

Continue to visit Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy’s website and follow us on Twitter for ongoing updates on events and programming. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay up-to-date with COVID-19.
