A message from DSA Canada President, Peter Maddox

As we continue to have our lives impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Association’s top priority is ensuring the safety, well-being and security of our direct selling community.

We are working with federal and provincial government agencies to discuss opportunities for direct selling participants – both companies and independent sales consultants – to continue receiving economic support during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to be acknowledged for our current and potential role in the ongoing economic recovery. We are working diligently to ensure that direct sellers are recognized and assisted.

If you face any challenges please let us know. We are ready to assist you and to ensure you have the information you need to maintain your business operations.

Thank you for your membership and ongoing support. We wish you, your families and colleagues continued health and safety.

In an effort to help you during this difficult period, we have put together some resources below.
