HCA Response to COVID-19

Office Closure & Programming Updates:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the resulting closure of City facilities, our office is closed and staff are working from home until further notice.

We’re still available via email and facebook, and will check voicemails at least once a day.

Let’s Move is on hiatus until at least April 21; we will re-assess closer to that date and determine whether/ when to resume the program based on the latest advice from governments and public health officials.

Reconciliation Conversation Series: Sports (scheduled for March 25) is postponed until Fall, as is our April event on Newcomers & Reconciliation.

We are working on providing supports to our community during these exceptional times. The Heritage Neighbour Labour facebook group is a place you can go to request or offer support such as social support, deliveries or donations.

We’re also compiling this list of resources to help our residents navigate these difficult times. If you have a suggestion for something to add, send us an email.

We encourage you to take care of yourselves and one another. Check in on your neighbours — especially those who are elderly, immuno-compromised, disabled, pregnant, and/or are losing income due to contracts being cancelled. If you are stocking up on basic supplies, or ordering dinner in, think of our locally owned, neighbourhood businesses first. And reach out for help if you need it.

Together, we will get through 💜
