As the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Board of the RDNO wants to assure the public and our community partners that the RDNO is closely monitoring events and will continue to keep stakeholders informed through a variety of channels including our website and social media. 

“We recognize that this is a rapidly changing situation, and we are monitoring updates closely,” said Kevin Acton, Chair of the RDNO Board of Directors. “We are taking our direction from the Provincial and Federal authorities, and will continue to update the public on any organizational changes.”

We have enhanced the sanitation measures at all work sites and will be taking additional precautions to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for both staff and members of the public.

RDNO capital projects will be moving forward as planned, and normal procurements processes are in place.
