April 2020 IPMS Toronto Virtual Meeting

In light of the social distancing activities that we’re all observing, for the first time ever the April’s Fort York AMPS / IPMS Toronto meeting will be held ONLINE via ZOOM.  
If you’re unfamiliar with the ZOOM platform, feel free to watch a brief YouTube video on the basics of ZOOM:
ZOOM works across platforms (Mac, PC, Linux, Desktop, Laptop, Android phones, iPhones, tablets and iPads) and with any browser if you’re on a laptop or desktop.   There is a very small file that needs to be downloaded as a browser extension which enables realtime video within your browser. 
Here’s the invite: 
David Chang-Sang is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

April Meetings Cancelled

As you probably expected, our April IPMS and AMPS meetings have been cancelled by Loblaws due to COVID-19 precautions.

“We know that members of our community are concerned by the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus. Our business is following the recommendations of Health Canada and local public health agencies to protect the health of our customers and staff.

As such, effective immediately, we have cancelled all PC Cooking School programs and activities until further notice.”

We will post news of the May meeting as soon as we are informed by Loblaws.
