COVID-19 Update

June 19, 2020

Dear friends,  

As we move into summer with sunshine filled days and warm nights, we are thinking of you. We are sending our love as we continue to remain positive and look to the future with optimistic hearts. At a time where we would usually be getting ready to travel and share new adventures we find ourselves having to dream of new journeys that await us. Our world is still fragile and we are all patiently doing our part to help in the healing. Bravo for being so awesome! 

We want to send our heartfelt thanks to everyone that is helping to support so many local small businesses that are struggling during this very difficult time. Takeout meals, curb side pickups or delivery orders – it is true, it takes a village! We are so blessed to live in such a wonderful country and in communities that support and care for one another. We can never thank our essential workers enough for all they do to keep us safe every day. 

Our Maple Leaf Tours team have been using this time to discover new and fun pastimes! Betty has taken up the trampoline becoming a child again playing with her grandchildren. Richard is giving Mike Holmes a run for his money as a project pro! We love that Margaret has just discovered Netflix and we are all eagerly sending her our favourite series and movies to watch! Kristine is watching Mark Cullen videos trying to become a master gardener and is failing miserably but instead trying constantly to keep Lincoln out of the flowerbeds! 

Wishing everyone a wonderful Father’s Day and although we can’t be together to celebrate, a phone call, text or video will help keep us close at heart. It is a difficult time being apart from our loved ones and when the time is right we shall cherish every special moment that we can spend together, knowing how valuable they are. So for now, let’s take heart in small joys and await the time when we can hold each other again. Aren’t hugs the best?   

Even though our offices remain closed indefinitely, we are always working remotely and are here to help you in any way we can. You can reach us by phone 613-384-0012 from Monday – Friday from 8:30 am – 5 pm or by email We are posting new, updates and photos on our website as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages if you want to follow along with the fun! We sure miss you and it’s one way we can keep in touch. 

As we continue through these uncertain times, there will be good days, bad days, funny days, scary days, play days, work days, holidays and HEYdays! It is important to remember that we are not alone. We are all experiencing this together and if you would like to chat or ever need someone to talk to, we are here for you. We are only a phone call away and would be happy to hear from you. It is important that we are here for one another and try to help where ever and whenever we can, however we can. 

We think of you often and remember our wonderful shared travels and experiences. We can hardly wait for you to join us for more adventures to make unforgettable memories. Until then, be kind to one another and yourself. With much love,

Alison, Nicole, Danielle, Megan, Julie, Margaret,Betty, Bob, Joanne, Anne, Richard, Steve, Susan
