On March 23, 2020 the Ontario Provincial Government mandated the closure of non-essential workplaces and later published details of those business considered essential:
While the Ontario Government has confirmed that professional and social services that support the legal and justice system are essential, Lancaster, Brooks & Welch has determined that it is our social responsibility to close our physical offices effective March 24, 2020 for a period of 14 days during which we will continue to work remotely.
Our priority is to continue to respond to client needs while safeguarding the health and safety of our team and our community. Our systems and technologies remain secure and are fully functional in order to respond to client needs. We are committed to serving our clients with the same quality of service and professional advice understanding that we all need to do our part to delay and stop the spread of Covid-19 and protect the health and wellbeing of those most vulnerable in our community.
We remain here to respond to your needs. Our general phone line remains open at 905-641-1551.
