Annual Report

Annual Report 21-22

Continuing to Navigate a Sea of Uncertainty

For a second year, SCIO’s annual journey began with navigating a new sea of uncertainty. With an ongoing pandemic, we prioritized the safety of our clients, staff and broader community to minimize the impact of COVID-19. We worked from home offices with limited in-person activities and appointments. The gradual easing of rules allowed us to operate closer to the SCIO we all knew pre-pandemic and we were able to maintain an exceptional level of operations.

Communication with the government was impacted, limiting opportunities to connect with ministry staff and other key players equipped to press our business cases for how we can support OHTs and SSMs. With the end of our fiscal year aligning with the timing of the provincial election cycle, these discussions were impacted even more.  We have a passionate, dedicated and capable team that is ready to ramp up their efforts again with the newly elected government.

This past year, we focused on maximizing productivity in an uncertain environment, keeping in mind our community’s most pressing needs.
