The chapter experienced a rough couple of months with the pandemic hitting Ontario in March but, with the help of generous sponsors, the MPI Foundation and EM+ – the chapter has rebounded. That said, it will still take a while before the chapter re-builds its reserves and is in a financially healthy position.
