In the light of the spread of the Covid-19, we are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of everyone at the Family Centre. As safety is always our highest priority we wish to inform that All our programs at the Family Centre, Circle of Care and Connection and Dads’ Drop-In will be closed as of now. We will however, continue to monitor the situation closely by following the latest guidance from the health authorities on the daily basis to let families know about the resumption of our programs. I would thank you all for your continued support at these challenging times.

In this time of uncertainty, we all need to do our best to Flatten the Curve:



  • Wash your hands >20 seconds with soap and warm water.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • Cancel all non-essential travel anywhere.
  • If you can work from home, do so!
  • Get a flu buddy (aka ‘pandemic pal’) and make back-up plans for care of children, pets, and those in need of special assistance
  • Look beyond yourself. At all times, be kind to each other and be mindful of other people’s worries.


  • Do not touch your face.
  • Do not attend non-essential public gatherings.
  • Do not hoard masks, or essential supplies beyond your family's need.
  • Do not shake hands; get creative with zero-contact greetings.
  • Do not go to work if you are in any way sick.
  • Do not go to the doctor without calling ahead.
