We understand the tremendous impact that COVID-19 is having on the lives of our clients, families and staff; especially those dealing with mental health challenges, children with complex needs and adults with developmental disabilities who require support.
We continue to carefully monitor updates provided by Health Canada, along with those from the federal and provincial governments.
In an effort to help prevent the spread of this virus in our community, we have made the decision to close our offices to the public until further notice.
Our Aurora and Markham offices, as well as, our satellite offices in Durham and Simcoe will be closed to the public until further notice.
