Covid-19 Update

Thank you for all of your patience as the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold.

Effective Tuesday, March 17, YWCA Halifax offices will be closed and operating by phone, email, or teleconference until Friday, May 1.

For our childcare centres, this closure is in accordance with the requirements announced by the Province of Nova Scotia of all licensed centres and child care programs.

We are in the process of moving to online delivery of all programs including community-based programs, including income tax clinics, training and information sessions, and school based programs.

We also recognize that there are many very vulnerable members of our community who rely on the YWCA for a variety of supports. We have developed a number of contingency plans to continue to support our most vulnerable participants particularly in our housing programs, anti-trafficking team, December 6th program, and newcomer supports.

Thank you again for your patience and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

Miia Suokonautio, Executive Director, YWCA Halifax
