Happy (virtual) Canada Day!

Many of us enjoy going to our local Canada Day celebrations, being out in our communities, and celebrating our country together.

While this holiday might look a bit different for us this year, there are many ways we can all still celebrate safely! Lots of cities are taking the celebrations virtual. The Government of Canada even has an entire webpage dedicated to virtual celebrations, and Canada Day Celebration kits with activity themes!

No matter how you are celebrating Canada Day this year, remember to keep a safe social distance, at least 2m from other people. Stay safe and healthy, and have fun!

BC’s Restart Plan

Hey everyone, the Province has posted BC’s Restart Plan to their website. As well as having great resources, it talks about:

  • Protective measures we’ve taken in B.C. have made a difference
  • The next stage of our challenge
  • How we’ll keep transmission low
  • How we’ll start getting people back to work (including details on “Phases 1 to 4”)
  • Some next steps to make life a little easier
  • How we’ll keep taking care of each other
  • The little things make a big difference

You can also download the plan as a PDF. Check it out!
