Just a quick post to let everyone know the awaited Burgers for Relief campaign 2020 will be postponed until 2021.  We were so looking forward to partnering with restaurants this year and growing our fundraiser, however due to COVID-19 we need all hands on deck here at Crisis Centre.  All of our residential programs have stayed open during the pandemic to ensure our community members  have the services they need to get by.  Wishing you all the best this fall!

It has been brought to our attention that google has listed the homeless shelter as "temporarily closed"  while we wait for them to fix their mistake I wanted to post to ensure everyone is aware the shelter is open for admissions.  You will be screened at the door using the Ontario Governments COVID-19 screener.  If you have questions about the services offered at the shelter please call 705-474-1031.  We are open 24 hours a day.
