It was remarkable to watch our community come together to show incredible support for each other. During this shorter AGM, Devin will share our 2020 highlights and a look ahead at our goals for 2021, as well as unveil our 2021-2023 strategic plan, and Paula will walk through an overview of our 2020 financial health.
