The health and safety of our employees, members, and partners is our highest priority at Young Living. First and foremost, we want to assure our members that we’re putting people first while still maintaining high-functioning business operations. Despite the growing health concerns related to COVID-19, we’re here to support you as much as ever. That goes for all of our market leadership around the world too. Our corporate leaders in every Young Living market have responded to this crisis with timeliness, insight and the agility required to overcome the business challenges presented by this global situation. Watch our video for the latest update.*

As a key part of putting people first, we’ve taken decisive steps to protect our employees around the world. One of these steps is to follow sound guidance from public health authorities and ask employees to work from home for the near future.
For areas of our business with functions that cannot be done remotely, we’re strategically staggering shifts to create space between people to reduce potential exposure—both for employees and members of the public. This includes, for example, our farms, warehouse, shipping operations, and other important functions. Globally, you can also count on the support you need from your market Member Services teams.
While we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will respond based on the advice of governments, public health authorities, and medical professionals, we are also taking these critical steps:
1. Organizing a virtual International Grand Convention and cancelling the live event.
2. Postponing all farm tours until further notice.
3. Cancelling or postponing major events.
The safety and well-being of the attendees at any Young Living event has and always will be our first priority. We’ll continue to evaluate our general event schedule and update event dates and locations as needed.
Please see below for updates regarding specific events and member support. Information is subject to change:

At Young Living Canada, we are doing everything we possibly can to ensure order fulfillment and shipping timelines remain as short as possible. These extraordinary circumstances have impacted every part of the global supply chain, and we appreciate everyone’s patience while we navigate this new reality together.
While we encounter some unexpected changes and delays, we remain committed to our mission of wellness and supporting you and your families through this time. To help you stay informed, please review the following:
We are working hard with our partners to keep as many products in stock as possible, and limit the out of stock items, even while conditions continue to change every day.
Orders will continue to fulfill and ship from both our Calgary and Mississauga warehouses. This is to ensure all members across Canada have access to our entire inventory of wellness essentials. Because orders may be fulfilled at either location, this may impact and delay when tracking number information is posted, however does not mean the order is not being processed. We have not forgotten about you!
If Ground Shipping is selected, please allow for 7-10 business days from the time the order is placed to the time the order is delivered.
While shipping delays are anticipated to continue and circumstances remain fluid and ever-changing, we will provide new updates in the following locations to help you stay informed and empowered:
Covid-19 Update Centre
Canada’s Out of Stock Report: This report is updated every Wednesday and is accessible when logged in to your Virtual Office
within the Member Resources and Member News sections.
At checkout, a shipping notice will display informing of any potential delays (Note: members placing Monthy ER orders will not see this notification unless they are updating their ER template).
Due to the current global health crisis, we’re experiencing a sudden surge in orders, which has led to some shipping delays. Rest assured that our team is working around the clock to get back on track. We are processing orders as quickly as possible and will continue to honour the shipping methods you selected at checkout as soon as we process your order. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these temporary delays.
Due to higher volumes and important safety measures implemented in Canada Post’s processing facilities (such as physical distancing), some Canada Post orders are taking longer to process, impacting some areas of Canada.
The processing of large or heavy items may be further delayed, as Canada Post works to ensure proper safety procedures to protect employees while handling these items.
In an effort to gain processing efficiencies with heavy order volumes, Canada Post may move items for processing between its facilities from time to time, and therefore, the induction scan may show a location different than the one a member isaccustomed to seeing, and there is no need for concern.
A parcel could travel across a number of facilities from initial induction to delivery to the final address. Therefore, for some orders, the cumulative delay could be more than a week.
Additional updates are posted on Canada Post’s Alert section of their website.
Due to the global pandemic heightening sensitivities around public events and group gatherings, Young Living Canada would like to provide an update around a few upcoming 2020 events.
Monthly Events at AEC/OEC
Monthly events at the AEC and OEC will be postponed until further notice. We understand the value these events brought to our members and community, therefore, our teams are currently looking into digital event formats for the future and will keep you informed as new opportunities are made available.
On the Grow
The On the Grow events planned for Winnipeg and Montreal will be postponed to a later 2020 date. On the Grow events planned for Saskatoon, Moncton and Nanaimo will be rescheduled for 2021. We will continue to evaluate and monitor the changing landscape, and provide communications and updates.
International Grand Convention
For 2020, our biggest annual event will be 100% virtual. While this event will no longer be in person, our virtual reach will be limitless and will break down boundaries—giving us the opportunity to reach thousands of homes and ignite the momentum that the convention brings.
