Hello Friends,

The health and well-being of Ontarians is our government’s top priority.

Thanks to the collective efforts of our frontline health care workers and people in York Region, to stop the spread of COVID-19, more people will be able to get back to work as additional businesses and services in certain regions across Ontario can begin to enter Stage 2 of Ontario’s Framework to Reopening the Province.

To celebrate Canada Day, my office will be distributing our printed Summer newsletter by mail. On the back page of my Summer newsletter, you can find the Canada Flag, that you can cut out to stick to your window, fridge and more. If you may have not received a newsletter, and would like to, please email my office and a copy will be personally delivered to you.

Throughout these months, the residents of Markham-Unionville will be receiving a call from my office to hear about concerns or questions you may be having during this COVID-19 outbreak.

We will continue to work with our partners in government and the healthcare sectors to protect you and your loved ones.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to my office.



Billy Pang, MPP
