COVID-19 Stage 3

COVID-19 Stage 3


To Our Valued Entrepreneurs, Investors, Sponsors/Partners & Friends of NOA

The global spread of COVID-19 continues to affect everyone both personally and professionally. On behalf of the Northern Ontario Angels Board of Directors, we want you to know that the health and safety of our employees and consultants is very important to us. I wanted to take a moment to summarize some of the things we are doing to keep everyone safe during this crisis as we enter into Stage 3, while continuing business operations:

Our staff and consultants continue to work remotely from their home offices providing teleconference and video conference meetings. Gatherings are permissible for up to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors, non-essential in-person gatherings of any size should be limited. Community spread remains possible across the region. Limiting our contacts and in-person interactions as much as possible is critical in reducing transmission of COVID-19.


We will be hosting private pitches at hotels for up to 10 people, with social distancing, face covering, sanitization and following hotel safety protocols. NOA face to face meetings with one or two people have been held at outdoor patios across the Region.
Our NOA Gold Sponsors have relevant information that may help you during this time:
