Just wanted to share some inspiring stories of businesses and organizations stepping up to help those needing support during this challenging time in our community. These are just a few great examples of so many using their resources and ingenuity to help. I want you to know that my team and I are also working hard to support you during this difficult time. While my office is closed to in-person visits, we are available by phone and email to help. Please see below for more information on how the Government of Canada is helping seniors, students and farmers. Unfortunately, while many are helping out, there are those trying to use this crisis as an opportunity to scam others. Please see a link below to a “Little Black Book of Scams” by the Competition Bureau of Canada to help recognize different type of scams and what to do about them. Together we will get through this! Wishing all “Mothers” a very Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday.

Additional 200 masks have now been ordered for further distribution.
