During the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our clients, staff, and community must be our top priority. The Government of Canada and individual provinces have recommended that all citizens self-isolate and stay home - refrain from all non-essential outings. If you must leave your home, social distancing appears to be our best tool to protect ourselves and others at this time - click here for more information.
The purpose of this is to slow the spread of the disease and “flatten the curve” of incidence rates in the coming weeks. For more information from Health Canada, click here .
We are now encouraging all clients and their providers to make alternate arrangements for sessions, including the use of telephone and/or video conferencing.
