Good afternoon members


The Members meeting is still scheduled for tomorrow September 23rd at 6 pm in the parking lot by units 7 & 8. The Board is proposing an emergency by law that changes how members are allowed to vote during the pandemic, as well as one other change to bylaw 7, at tomorrows meeting.


Circumstances have changed and Under the Reopening Ontario Act, currently only 25 people can meet outdoors and 10 indoors. We want to maintain the 25 person limit by doing the following:

If there are 2 voting members in a household, and we have reached meeting maximum of 25 people, we are asking that the attendee votes and then they can go get the 2nd member to come out and vote right after, while still maintaining the 25 person limit. This gives every Co-op member a chance to vote on this by law.


We want to give a chance for every member to vote. We are asking everyone who plans on attending the meeting, to RSVP to Joan at wyndhamhillcoop@gmail.com.


We do ask that only adults attend the meeting and be in the area of the meeting. While we would love to see your kids, we really need to keep our 25 person attendance for the adult members who are voting.


The entire parking area directly in front of 7 and 8 will be blocked off and have only 1 point of entry and 1 point of exit. We ask the everyone wear a mask or face shield for the safety of everyone in attendance. Please maintain 6 ft of distance from each other.


Thank you.
