Your social distancing reminder of the day…

Hey everyone, it is more important than ever that we protect ourselves and others by staying a 2m distance away.

Staying active is important for everyone to be healthy, too! Just because you’re “social distancing” doesn’t mean you can’t participate. Some fitness businesses are streaming classes online for free.

There are many fun and active things to do that connect us safely with others – like calling up a friend and putting on some music to dance or sing to! Why not belt out a tune, or get up and boogie the next time you’re on FaceTime?

More Income and Disability Assistance…

Hey everyone, Castanet is reporting that the B.C. government is increasing the monthly amount that people on income and disability assistance receive to help them with COVID-19.

If you are not eligible for the federal government’s emergency support programs, or if you are a low-income senior, you will get an automatic $300 monthly for three months starting this month (April). Benefits will not be reduced for those who qualify for the $2,000 Canada Emergency Response Benefit.
