All current and in-coming guests are aware of the change of hours and we are in continual contact with our guests and their families to be sure they are safe and have what they require during this time. For in-coming guests, we are making special arrangements to be sure we can accommodate them with limited contact.

We are taking strong measures to ensure a healthy and clean environment. This includes increasing the frequency of our cleaning processes of our suites and common spaces with special attention to high-touch surfaces and ensuring areas are disinfected thoroughly. We are also using alcohol-based hand cleansers throughout our office, common spaces and suites.

We will ensure that our guests are well taken care of by assisting them with online grocery and supply orders and provide essentials from our pantry as needed.

As we continue to monitor the situation we will update our practices as needed to reflect recommendations from the Government of Canada. In these uncertain times, we recognize there are continual changes and we’ll do our best to keep you updated on our services.

We continue to move forward with thoughtful consideration of our guests, volunteers, staff, and partners.


Take care,
Stacey Grocholski, Executive Director
