Wow, another year has simply flown by in what feels like record time!  

The ongoing pandemic definitely brought some added challenges in 2021, but we did enjoy many victories along the way. There is no disputing that the success of our Association is built on the efforts of our members and, in this past year, your efforts netted many successes. We’re so proud of the resilience you continue to show year after year, even in the worst of times. 

On behalf of COPA, I extend my personal and genuine appreciation to each and every one of you for your continued support. Thank you for the dedication, loyalty, and commitment that you’ve shown. How reassuring it has been to know that we can count on you regardless of what we’re facing. It is a great pleasure to work with you. 

We know the challenges will keep coming in the New Year and we’re working on initiatives to support you. We’re lining up new partners and planning seminars that will give you tools to help keep your business running smooth. The New Year will kick off with our Making Waves Learning Event which has a timely line-up of experts addressing a number of noteworthy business topics. Do take a look and register for the topics that pique your interest. 

I would love to hear from you on how we can better serve you; whether it’s a topic you want to know more about or a service provider you’d like us to work with, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at or 905-624-9462 ext. 228. Remember, there’s room for you at the table; just let me know if you’d like to participate more in your Association. 

Wishing you and your family a joyful Holiday Season and much success in the New Year. 

Your president
