Holiday Access Visits Notification December 21, 2020
The Premier of Ontario announced today that extreme measures have to be implemented due to the dire situation with respect rapidly rising cases of Covid-19. The entire province will go into lock down as of 12:01 am December 26, 2020.
This greatly impacts Kunuwanimano’s ability to transport children in care throughout the jurisdiction and also from the south of the province for Holiday Access Visits. Management is contacting the communities to inform them of this imperative change.
The most difficult conversation will be with our most precious children who were to spend time with families and/or extended family. Virtual access visits are now being planned by staff and supervisors.
Kunuwanimano has fiduciary responsibility to comply with the provincial pubic health directive to ensure children, families, communities and staff are not at further risk.
Chi Meegwetch and with Respect.
Kunuwanimano Child and Family Services Senior Management
