2023 Events & Activities
Should provincial health guidelines change at any point, please note that we will adjust our offerings/procedures as needed, but fingers crossed we will be ‘good to go’ as planned. Please note, we have largely shifted our educational offerings to being online and will continue creating videos for our Instagram, TikTok and/or Facebook pages.
