On Friday, April 16, 2021, the Province of Ontario announced additional Stay-at-home order restrictions, including the extension of the order from four weeks to six weeks, restricting outdoor gathering limits to only members of your household, and limiting building to essential construction activities.

Residents are reminded that staff are working remotely, if calling in, please leave a phone message and your call will be returned.
