James Bay Community Project

July 7, 2020


As a result of cautious and thoughtful planning around what’s best for our JBCP community of staff, volunteers, and participants, the James Bay Community Project building re-opened Monday, July 6.

While public health considerations preclude our immediately going back to being a community gathering place, our staff and outreach workers are available online, on the phone, and via scheduled personal appointments using appropriate sanitizing and social distancing protocols.

SOME Family Centre programs continue ONLINE, but there are:
NO Family Centre Drop-in programs
NO Seniors Social Connections lunches
NO public access to washrooms and the telephone
NO food giveaway table
NO waiting in the lobby or hallways for appointments
For more information on how to make an appointment, please contact the appropriate outreach worker or staff member to make arrangements.

Please continue to stay safe.

And THANK YOU for you ongoing patience and continued understand as we try to figure it all out!
