In the past month, measures have been taken across Canada to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This will have an impact on all of us, and the CCGSD is doing our part in the name of public health.
During this time, the CCGSD office will be closed and our programming in schools and other public spaces will be suspended until further notice. We do not currently have an estimate of when our scheduled programming will return, but we will be sure to inform you when we have more news. Please continue to follow our Facebook and Instagram for more updates. We ask for your understanding and solidarity at this time as we all work together to keep everyone safe.
Our scheduled events in Ottawa are also cancelled, including our Sports and Physical Education Conference (03/28) the DOP Gala (04/08). At this time, it is unclear if the Sports conference will be rescheduled. Our resource kits are suspended until our office re-opens, at which time we will gladly reship resources to schools. We are still considering making changes to our annual GSA conference and are exploring the potential of rescheduling the event for the fall of 2020.
We would like to express support for our community partners. We are still working to promote gender and sexual diversity at this time, and we look forward to the resolution of this crisis when we can continue working with local and regional communities across Canada. Finally, we are exploring offering digital training sessions while schools are closet and if you are interested in a session for students/teachers, please contact email@example.com
If you have any questions related to the impact this will have on CCGSD programming, please contact our office administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
