Spring 2021 Programs During COVID-19

We were hopeful that government restrictions would have eased in time for the launch of our Spring session to allow in-person programs. However, with the latest updates, we have made the decision to continue with only virtual programs. The website has been updated to reflect this. Some programs will not be able to run virtually and will be removed. Our brochure will not accurately reflect these changes, so we encourage you to review our website for the most up-to-date information.

If you need any additional resources during this time, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 780-413-4521. In the meantime, we have already created some online programs, services and support options. These are on each program page, the At-Home Family Fun page, and our YouTube channel.
