As an organization we understand the concerns about the current situation around the world, including Ottawa, relating to COVID-19. Our top priority is the health and safety of our Friends, clients, volunteers, staff and the community at large. The situation in Canada is however, changing rapidly and we have decided to have all staff work from home until further notice. We will be accessing our email and voicemail during this time.
We have also asked our staff and volunteers to refrain from meeting face-to-face during this time as per Ottawa Public Health’s guidelines with regard to social distancing and reducing the spread of germs. In addition, we have suggested that contact can continue by phone, email, Skype etc. where possible.
Considering this change in the way we are working; we will be temporarily closing our waiting lists for all programs.
Should there be any changes to our current planning, we will notify individuals directly by email, post information on our website and our social media channels.
