As the world continues to face challenges in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking steps to provide some safety measures to our clients and staff.

KEEPING EVERYONE SAFE
The safety of our employees and clients is something that we care deeply about. While the extent of COVID-19 is still unknown, our plans have the necessary flexibility to evolve as the situation requires.
As a result, Sharenet will unfortunately not be accommodating client meetings at a branch level, for the forceable future. As soon as the situation changes, we will advise you, our valuable clients accordingly.
