With growing concerns in regards to the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to assure that our community is still able to access various resources. We would like to extend our gratitudes to our friends over at Interim Place for putting together a document with external resources currently present in the Peel Region. We will also be adding resources to this page as they become available.
It’s a scary and confusing time for a lot of folks and we sincerely hope these resources help everyone stay safe and healthy.
