Message to the Community:
UPDATED: June 27, 2020
We want to extend a thank you for your patience during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing us to address the ongoing challenges in preparing our phased re-opening plan. As our focus continues to be on the health and safety of our community, we have continued our enhanced safety measures during this closure, based on the latest information available.
We will be continuing to evaluate our protocols in relation to the requirements by public health officials to ensure we are proceeding in the safest way possible. The Centre will continue to post updates about the status of public offerings and programs on this page in the coming dates. .
We will provide more information on how this reopening plan will unfold, as we have the necessary protocols in place, to ensure that safety is held as a priority for our community. We highly recommend that you check back here before visiting the Centre.
Please visit the Health Canada website for the most up-to-date recommendations and information regarding COVID-19.

- All March – July programs and rentals

Supporting the Centre
As a non-profit, all of the COVID 19-related program cancellations are, of course, having a big impact on the Centre’s financial stability. Recognizing that this is a situation common to all, if you are in a position to be able to support the Centre during this time, donations would be most welcome.
Donations can be sent in the following ways:
- Sending an e-transfer (use email email@example.com)
- Donating online
- Calling the office during office hours (Monday-Friday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm) and donating using your credit card
We appreciate any support you’re able to offer.
We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate this evolving situation. We’ll be proceeding with plans that prioritize health, safety and care – especially for the most vulnerable members of our community. It feels more important now than ever for us to take care of each other.
