Update # 9: March 31 – Notes about Year-End and Cyber Security

Dear colleagues,

The ongoing COVID-19 situation has required us to adjust deadlines and processes for our core business. As the calendar flips to the 2020-2021 fiscal year tomorrow, I wanted to make you aware of updates and changes to fiscal year-end processes, as well as highlight a few items as we look for more secure and effective ways to work remotely.

Fiscal Year-End Processes

The deadlines for a number of HR and Finance processes have been adjusted. Changes of particular note include:

You will find the most recent updates on HR and Finance processes on the Justice Canada COVID-19 employee-focused webpage. You can also contact your Financial Management Advisor or Corporate Accounting Services for further information.

Working Remotely and Securely

We continue to ask all employees to telework whenever and wherever possible. As we start using new collaboration tools to connect with our teams, it’s critical to take precautions to keep documents and conversations secure from cyber threats.

Thank you again for all your hard work, and please take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
