A Message from COTM Executive Director

Hello All,

As I write this, we are enjoying some beautiful late summer / early fall days with tomorrow the first official day of autumn. This time of year is associated with the start of school, cooler days, garden harvest and for COTM, annual general meeting preparation and retrospective reflection.

On behalf of COTM Council Chair, Katelyn Maruca, and myself, I want to encourage you to join the 2020 AGM on Tuesday, October 27th, 2020.  This meeting of members is a key part of the accountability COTM owes to you to conduct its operation in a fair and transparent manner.

The Annual Report is the first since the COTM Council approved its current 2020-2022 strategic plan. The report will highlight how work is progressing and future efforts will support meeting these stated priorities.

If you are a COTM member, you will have received an invitation to register for the online meeting which will be conducted using Go-To-Webinar. The agenda will include time for discussion regarding the COTM response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to you joining us from the comfort of your home. The Annual General Meeting package is now online and the Annual Report will soon be available for your review. And if you cannot attend, you are still welcome to send me your questions.

Sharon Eadie, O.T. Reg. (MB)
COTM Executive Director
