Canadian Gift Association: COVID-19 Information

The Canadian Gift Association is committed to giving all attendees safe and enjoyable trade shows at the Toronto and Alberta Gift + Home Markets.

At this point, we are moving forward with the markets in August, as planned. The CanGift Board of Directors and Association staff continue to actively monitor the COVID-19 situation, both locally and globally. All options are being considered and next steps will be based on information from public health officials. We are also monitoring other industry events scheduled to take place this summer as we strive to make the best decision under the circumstances. It cannot be overstated that the Association’s goal is to keep the CanGift community safe and healthy. We will continue to provide you with regular updates.

According to Health Canada and local Public Health Officials, here are a few tips for you to keep in mind and stay healthy:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
• Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
• Avoid contact with people who are sick
• Stay home if you are sick

Thank you for your dedication to the giftware industry and for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you this August.
