Dear Ann and Stuart,
The ORA is very gratified by the deferral of the AIR filing. Thank you for any contributions you may have made to that announcement.
Along with all healthcare providers we’ve been asked to do our part and help mitigate the impact of this pandemic on our most vulnerable populations and on our acute care sector. We are ready and anxious to do so. Help us do our part.

The ORA has been holding weekly consultations with our members to hear what their experiences and questions are during this pandemic. Below I’ve outlined the issues and requests for FSRA’s guidance and assistance that have emerged thus far. We appreciate that some may be out of scope for FSRA and would, in these cases, be grateful for suggestions or introductions as to where to redirect.
