Area 86 – Western Ontario

Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 Corona Virus, many events that were scheduled for this spring and summer HAVE BEEN CANCELLED, including the Area 86 Spring Assembly weekend and the International Conference. Our common welfare does come first and we want you all to stay safe and healthy during this outbreak.

The Spring 2020 Edition of our Area Newsletter called The Focus has been printed but we have not yet been able to distribute them to the DCM’s. You can, however, read The Focus online.

The 2020 International Convention in Detroit has sadly been cancelled. You can read the message from the Chairperson for the General Service Board regarding the cancellation.

Read the Sharing from the General Service Office about COVID-19.

CERAASA 2021 will be hosted by Area 86. It will be held at the Holiday Inn in St. Catherines. Please see the CERAASA website for more information.

*Self-support contributions at every level are still needed during this period of social distancing. Please see our contributions page for instructions as to how you can continue to support our fellowship financially.

We WILL BE TOGETHER AGAIN when it is safe to do so, we hope that will be in time for our Area Committee Meeting in August. In the meantime, please reach out to all of your group members as, by helping each other, we ensure our own sobriety. Also, be on the look-out for messages from your DCM, District Secretary, Area Committee member and from GSO.

The business of AA continues to be done and many of our service workers, at every level, ought to be commended for their tremendous efforts.

Until we meet again, read The Focus, stay safe and be well!
